TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A direct descendant of the vineyard peach, the Nectavigne has a soft, downy skin of a gorgeous crimson color. It hails from Monts et Coteaux du Lyonnais, it is a truly aromatic fruit, sweet, tangy, and tart in both aroma and flavor. It is a very succulent peach, with a beautiful reddish flesh, and each bite will be overflowing with juices.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

The Peach Nectavigne is perfect for tarts and other desserts, like sorbet. Use them to make syrups, jams, and compotes. Of course, it’s completely wonderful to eat on its own. Chill it, cut it up, and enjoy it with crème fraiche. It’s also great to pair with foie gras, and a crisp white wine.

FRUIT OF THE IMMORTALS

Peaches have long been a symbol of immortality in Chinese culture and mythology. It’s found in their paintings, in fables, and in other forms of art. A legend goes that the Jade Emperor and his wife Xi Wangmu (both Chinese gods) would hold a banquet, “The Feast of Peaches.” It’s celebrated on the third day of the third moon month, in honor of Xi Wangmu. It occurs every six thousand years, and those invited to the banquet are deities and immortals. Peaches are associated with immortality, and it is said that it is the secret to the gods’ immortality.

Ripe peaches must be consumed as soon as possible. They will last about 1 week at room temperature. You may store them in the refrigerator, or freeze them. To freeze, slice them and coat their flesh with some lemon juice, and store in an airtight container. Consume within 2 weeks.
