Answer: China. They produce 45% of the world’s peaches. That compares to the United States which produces 5% of the total. Most of China’s peaches are actually consumed in the country. They prefer white fleshed, low-acid types of peaches and nectarines. Some yellow fleshed peaches are canned and shipped overseas but this is a small proportion.
