Last night I bit into a peach that had a split pit and there was a clear gel by the opening of the pit and had a very bitter taste.. I spit out what I had in my mouth and threw the rest of the peach out. While the peaches are all fine I told The Kid to just be careful when eating the peaches and to not just bite into one but to cut it up and remove the seed first.
Just be careful when eating peaches and Never leave the pits where kids or pets can get into them, they can be very harmful to small pets.
I cut clear through this peach this morning with little effort, so be careful when cutting them too
This is NOT an almond, this is the "nut" inside the peach pit that can be harmful to small children and pets. It is inedible.
If you do experience cutting into a peach like this, lay it flat on a cutting board and slice through it sideways to remove the pit and discard. I've found if you cut it lengthwise it's easy to remove the first half and the other half is a mess and you lose a good portion of the peach flesh.
