Thanks to the conquers of Alessandro Magno in 330 b.C. was spread in all the field of the Mediterranean Sea, where in Egypt the peach was considered holy to Arpocrate, God of the silence and the childhood, even today the children’s cheeks’re compared to the peaches because of their velvety softness. The fruit, came to Rome in the I century a.C. and has found fertile grounds for the extensive cultivation over all the national soil. Nowadays, thanks to an endless varietal evolution, we can count houndreds of variety existing, which differ in color and white pulp or yellow pulp and in harvesting period. Only in the 70s was discovered the ‘’peach walnut’’ or ‘’nectarine’’ today in a big commercial interest and very appreciated and demanded by the consumers.
