The peach tree (the scientific name: Prunuspersica, in Latin means Persian apple) is a species of Prunus that gives an edible juicy fruit,  with white or yellow flesh and velvety skin. Its classification depends on whether the flesh sticks to the stone or not, and therefore there are two basic types: clingstones and freestones.
