Occasionally I cut into a peach and find mold around the pit.  Is it safe to eat the flesh if I avoid that area, or should I throw the whole thing away?

Guess we'll be having a third going away HH this month, as Dan will soon no longer be with us.  :-)

 

Same thing happened to me a while back with peaches, so I did some interwebz searching, and found this type of explanation in a few places: 

 

"Peaches with split pits will mold on the inside because air is available to the inside of a peach. Split pits are usually caused by too much rain...a little molding around split pit fruit is usually okay."

Well, that's a relief! (though I wouldn't want to deprive you guys of a party :lol:).

My very first peach of the season was like that. I think it's probably much commoner in early-season cling-stones than later-season free-stones.
