“There are a whole lot of things in this world of ours you haven’t started wondering about yet.”–Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach

Step south of the Mason-Dixon, and one of the most popular desserts is a cobbler containing one of the oldest, most diverse fruits, the peach. The reach of the peach extends far beyond the Southern states, however. It is believed to be native to Northwest China, and has been cultivated since 2000 BC. The ancient Chinese believed the peach to possess more vitality than any other tree because their blossoms appear before the leaves. It is part of the genus Prunus, which also includes the cherry, apricot and almond. It is grown in a fairly limited range, as it requires dry, temperate climates and also needs full sunlight. Although Georgia is known as the “Peach State”, California produces the largest amount of peaches in the United States, with most coming from the San Joaquin Valley. Peaches are high in fiber, antioxidants and vitamins and aid in digestion. Join Morgan’s in the desert to celebrate this summer staple with a very special menu with exciting, original flavors, textures and platings.
