DID YOU KNOW?

Welcome to another edition of “Did You Know?”!!!

In my travels on this planet I’ve heard the term “clingstone” peach used a few times. I never knew that meant until a few weeks ago. It turns out that the terms “clingstone” and “freestone” are related and can refer to other fruits than just peaches.

A fruit that is classified as a clingstone means the flesh of that fruit tends to stick or “cling” to the pit in the middle. Now that I think about it, that’s pretty much common sense. I guess I never put two and two together. Man, being dumb sucks.

Anyways, a fruit that is classified as a freestone means the flesh of that fruit is relatively free of the pit in the middle. Again, that makes a lot of sense as well. I admit, this isn’t one of the best “Did You Know?” editions I’ve written. If I were to ever release a small collection of “Did You Know?”s in print, I’d leave this one out. Oh wait, I just thought of something. “When it gets hot in the summer, my underwear tends to cling to my stones.” Get it? Ok, come back tomorrow.

One thought on “DID YOU KNOW?”

  1. Thanks to the movie “Face Off” whenever I hear someone disucssing eating a peach I think of a really creepy Nicolas Cage.
