Peach Seed planted after removing its hard shell

We Japanese call peach simply as “Mo-mo.” Matured momo is very succulent and its pulp is fragile. So, peeling is very difficult. It is ideal that we don’t have to use kitchen knife and peels are removed manually. If The peaches are soft and mellow, it is possible to peel by hand.

We can harvest peach fruits from seedlings of peach trees, though seedlings of many fruits such as apple and persimmon don’t bear the same fruits as its parent fruits.

Incidentally, it is generally accepted that seedless peach cannot be produced because the shell that surrounds a core seed is composed of its pulp (ka-ni-ku, 果肉), unlike seedless grapes. Even if the almond nut-like seed inside hard shell is not produced, the hard shell is produced.
