Also known as flat or Saturn peaches, donut peaches get their name from their distinctive squat round shape. They are less acidic than regular peaches and have a sweeter flavour with almond overtones.
The European season for donut peach production starts in Spain from the end of April and continues until mid October. Spain is a leading producer country for donut peaches due to its warm Mediterranean climate and coastal location. Using a combination of low impact and organic cultivation techniques, Spain produces high-quality healthy fruit for export.
