Samperi - la Pesca nel Sacchetto

Slow Food Presidium

“Peach in the bag” is a peculiar yellow peach, a specialty of Leonforte, Sicily, Italy.

Its most famous feature is a paper bag, used to protect every single peach on the tree from pests without the aid of chemical products. Compared to the mainstream peach varieties, which are fruit of high engineering and offer a unvarying taste, peaches-in-bag are delicious and full of shades.

According to our tradition, when the peaches are grown ripe and sugary, we pick, peel and put them in syrup.
