White peaches are very sweet with low acidity. The low acidity allows for their natural sweetness to be more pronounced. White peaches tend to have a smoother texture than yellow peaches. From the outside, yellow and white peaches are distinguished by their skin color – deep yellow with a red or pink blush for yellow peaches, while the white varieties have more of a pale and pink coloring. Inside, the golden flesh of the yellow peach is more acidic, with a slight tartness that fades as the peach ripens and softens. Because of their low acidity white peaches taste sweet whether firm or soft. Like yellow-fleshed peaches, the amount of red or pink tones in the skin will differ with each variety, but has no bearing on the ripeness of the fruit.
