1. How do peaches grow?

Peach trees must be grown in areas that get cool enough in the winter to allow the tree to sleep for a period of time. A peach tree can grow to be 30 feet tall and can live for 40 years! But usually they are only allowed to grow to about 12 feet high. Then the peaches are harvested. 

2. Where do peaches grow?

Most peaches in the United States are grown in California. But they also grow in other states such as South Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Washington, New Jersey and Louisiana!!

Most peaches that are imported to the United States during the winter months come from Chile. 

3. What are some great ways to eat peaches?

Peaches are nutritious and delicious! You can eat them fresh or canned. You can put them on your cereal or in a fruit salad. Peach ice cream and peach yogurt are great, too. Yum, yum, good!!!
