Peaches are classic fruits. They are more specifically the most common drupe botanically. (I.e., they have a stone/pit.)

You might put them in a fruit salad to make it more delicious. (If you haven’t gathered, they’re delicious; and if you haven’t tried one, you’re living life wrong. If you have tried one, you know it definitely isn’t a vegetable.)
