Georgia peaches are packed with natural goodness. They're not only delicious, but incredibly nutritious.

And, a real plus for calorie counters, a medium-size Georgia peach contains only 38 calories, fewer than comparable-sized apples or pears.

In addition to being low-calorie, like all fruits and vegetables, Georgia peaches are cholesterol-free. Another plus: Georgia peaches are especially filling. Their 87 percent water content makes them a perfect between meal snack. But there's more. Georgia peaches also provide natural plant compounds called flavonoids, which research suggests may help prevent cancer and heart disease. So enjoy a Georgia peach!
