Peach, Prunus persica, is the fruit of a deciduous tree growing as high as 10 m and belonging to the subfamily Prunoideae of the family Rosaceae. It is classified with the Almond in the subgenus Amygdalus, distinguished from the other subgenera by the corrugated seed shell. The Peach is a tree native to China. It was introduced to Persia and the Mediterranean region through the Silk Road in early historical times, probably by about 2000 BC. Important historical Peach-producing areas are China, Japan, Iran, and the countries in the Mediterranean region; and more recently, the US, Canada, and Australia.

Peach is a well-documented and common cause of allergy in children and adults, resulting in oral allergy and systemic reactions such as urticaria, asthma and anaphylactic shock following the ingestion of the fresh or processed fruit. This is particularly the case in the Mediterranean area, where Peach is regarded as a major allergen. Peach has also been described as the primary cause of food anaphylaxis in Israel. In Japan, Peach has been reported to be a frequent cause of oral allergy syndrome (OAS). Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
