What is the largest peach growing nation in the world?

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.
