Flat fruit: #2 in a weird food series (probably a very short one)

I bought some "Flatto" flat peaches today. I was wary at first, thinking they'd either been genetically modified, or tortured as baby fruit, but they're actually a natural strain that originates in China, called pan tao there according to one site. They're known as saturn or donut peaches in the US; these were grown down in Otago.

They're white-fleshed with very small pits that are easy to twist out. I still prefer nectarines though for their more intense flavour.

One cut in half, then scoffed.
