Fact of the Day: Persian Apple

The English word "peach" is derived (though going through Old French first) from the Latin words persicum malum which means "Persian apple" in English.

  6. Nice!! There are more than 15 different kinds of peaches in my county, persia(iran). I think this fruit has originated from here.
