The peach has its origin in ancient China, where it was considered a symbol of long life and immortality, although it was due to the Persians whom took it across the commercial routes through the mountains, that its trading spread around. That’s where it gets its scientific name, Prunus Persica. The Prunus Persica it’s a deciduous tree, which means it loses all his leaves during the winter. The stem bark is smooth and ashy and its roots although very ramified, are not invasive. Actually, its root system is so marked that it induces the roots of every plant to not invade the ground of the contiguous plant. The leaves are simple, spear- shaped, with serrated margins in a bright green beam, hairless in both faces. The flowers are usually alone, sometimes in couple, almost sitting, of a light pink color.
