This stone fruit has phenols, organic compounds that inhibit the growth of breast-cancer cells, but the real draw is the flavor:

Buying and Storing: Look for fragrant, bruise-free peaches that give under gentle pressure. Store unwashed in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to five days.
Serving: Add a kick to homemade salsa by stirring in chopped peaches.
