A relative of the plum, Tanzania peach (P. persica) is a succulent fruit that has red skin with mostly velvet-textured skin. The interior of the fruit turns very soft when ripe but comparatively has outstanding firmness when still green. The characteristic big seed occupies the middle of the fruit and stands out in its reddish color against the stark white flesh. The peach first thrived on the northwestern tip of China, especially the mountainous region. The term ‘peach’ applies to its extensive growth in Iranian land during the Persian era. It is from here that the temperate fruit found its way into European grounds and from hence into Africa. Its Swahili name, pichi, is a loose English translation.
Peaches have antioxidants and other basic nutrients that prevent obesity and diabetes. Their vitamin C content is 11 percent of the daily value while iron goes to 1 percent. They also have 6 percent concentration of vitamin A, which is great for preventing eye diseases. The dietary fiber margin for optimal digestion stands at 6 percent of the daily requirements. The fruits are also energy-rich: they provide 3 percent of the daily needs of carbohydrates. Their potassium proportion for nurturing the electrolyte balance is 5 percent of the daily needs. The iron level goes to 1 percent while that of magnesium represents 2 percent of the daily needs for strong bone structure.
We source our peaches from the southern highlands of Tanzania, especially in the Iringa area. Here, our family growers maintain their crops in 0.5 hectares of land under organic conditions. They apply well-rotten cow dung to fix nitrogen into the soil and use conservative means to reduce pest infestation instead of chemical sprays.
Though it is a rule of the thumb to pick peaches when fully ripe to maintain flavor and taste, for shelf life reasons we harvest them when they have just matured. We look for a turn of color from green to faint yellow. We also ensure that the fruits retain a firm, stony plumpness. Our glove-clad workers normally pluck them off the tree by hand-picking means. They also use long poles with catching baskets to reach the fruits on the top branches.
We then wash the fruits and sort them by color and appearance. The best quality normally has a blemish-free skin and is faintly suffused by yellow over the green color. We remove any unwanted fruits and transfer the rest to the packinghouse.
We pack Tanzania peaches in double-layered trays. We also have 10-bushel bulk containers that keep the fruits by count. For any pieces that are meant for shipping when ripe, we keep them in single-layered trays to prevent crushing. We keep the tray boxes under cool, dry conditions to prevent any dehydration on transit. All boxes feature labels of the name or cultivar, the net weight, the country of origin and the destination.
We store Tanzania peaches at cold storage temperatures of at least 0 degrees and lower than 4 degrees Celsius. Our transportation trucks with modified environment interiors maintain this temperature from the cold room to the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar-es-Salaam. You can expect the produce to reach you in the space of one day after dispatch.
