The good peach should have some weight, a heft in your hand. She should fill your fingers. Now, exert a light tension with the pads of your fingers on the skin, a tugging apart, fingers and thumb pulling in opposite directions, just so. If she’s ready, the skin will part to reveal glistening, succulent flesh.

I've been so busy writing there's been no time to blog lately. It's almost peach season, so I thought I'd take a minute and share a possibly useful, if fictional, peach picking technique from one of my characters. Bond really was talking about peaches. What he had on his mind...that's another matter.
