The Health Benefits of Peaches, Cherries, and Other Stone Fruits

According to the latest U.S. Dietary Guidelines, nearly 8 in 10 Americans don't eat enough fruit. Bananas, apples, oranges, and grapes dominate our fruit servings. Stone fruits, a less-common but easy-to-love fruit family, are packed with nutrition and flavour.

Stone fruits have thin skin, tender flesh, and a tough stone (pit) that contains the plant's seed. Stone fruit season runs from late spring to fall, when mangos, plums, peaches, and nectarines shine.
