Josh Malina is a fruit blogger who also sometimes eats other foods. These posts were originally published last year to the fruit community in Charlottesville, VA. We can only hope that his journey continues here in Miami.
Tonight I ate a peach. I washed it, and then I laid it on my landlord’s stained wooden cutting board and photographed it. For you dear readers, I took its pictures. Some people’s religions forbid that kind of thing — but I am the devoted type.
Anyway, I took its photo, as you see here.
This was a good peach. A peach we can appreciate. Not a peach you write your momma about. Not a peach you dream about. But a good peach nonetheless.
It was sweet, but not terribly so. It had juice, but I wouldn’t call it juicy. Still, if someone came up to me and asked me, “Josh, is that a good peach?”, I would have no choice but to say yes.
So, you can buy this peach. But at $2.49 / lb, you’re better off going to Whole Foods and buying a local nectarine (same price).
