Stone fruit, also known as drupes, are fruits which have fleshy outer parts surrounding a hard inner core, which contains the seed.
What about peaches? Are peaches considered stone fruit?
Yes they are!
Peaches have soft, edible flesh, and a hard pit inside them. This pit is the â€œstoneâ€ which gives them the name stone fruit.
Other stone fruits include cherries, plums, and apricots.
