Peach Shaver Removes Fuzz (Nov, 1937)

Peach Shaver Removes Fuzz
Fuzzless peaches have been placed on the market by a Rich-wood, N. J., fruit grower. He has designed a special machine which “shaves” the fruit before it is offered for sale. Endless belts carry the peaches between moving brushes that strip away the soft, hairlike fibers and leave the fruit with a smooth outer surface. The fuzz is dropped into baskets and the treated fruit is packed according to size for shipment.

    Hmmm, a peachfuzz trimmer. There’s a joke in there somewhere…

    So wait, when I see both fuzzy and unfuzzy peaches in the store, they aren’t a different variety of peach, they’re just normal peaches which have been shaved?

    My world has been inverted.

    I think this guy would have saved some money if he had just planted nectarines, which basically are fuzzless peaches.

    I love both nectarines and peaches, but they do have quite different flavors.

    Don’t they do this with wax in Brazil?

    Where do I apply for the job of packing shaved peaches?

    I can’t help but think nature does a better job of it with the nectarine. And what happens with the shaved fuzz?
