Of all the types, the volcanic lands of Etna have chosen to give rise to a rare and exquisite variety of peach: the Flat Peach
Image
Image

An ‘ancient’,
delicious and still
little-known fruit

With its unmistakable shape, flattened on both sides, this typical Sicilian product has a set of specific characteristics and qualities that make it unique.
Image

Sweetly scented,
it’s a juicy taste of Sicily

Medium-small size with a white pulp, it is very sweet and soft and always retains that intense aroma that encapsulates the essence of the Etnean territory.

A time-sensitive delicacy
to snap up

Like any self-respecting delicacy,
the Flat Peach is only available
for a limited period:
its short ripening cycle and delicate preservation make it
a valuable treasure to be enjoyed
as soon as it is picked.

Virtue, taste and health

The Flat Peach, with its very low calorie and fat content, is a useful ally for low-calorie diets. It is also rich in water and fibre, combatting dehydration of the body during hot summer days.
The peach is one of the summer fruits par excellence: juicy, sweet,
thirst-quenching and multi-coloured

How to store
3moretti peaches

Ideally, they should be ripe and eaten within a couple of days, without being refrigerated. If you choose this type of storage, after three days, the peel may appear to have shrivelled.

So remember to take the peaches out of the fridge at least an hour before eating them, to recover their flavour and fragrance.
