Although its botanical name ''Prunus persica'' suggests the peach is native to Persia after the Persians introduced the fruit into the Western world, peaches actually originated in China, where they have been [[Peach production in China|cultivated since the early days of Chinese culture]]. Peaches were mentioned in Chinese writings as far back as the 10th century BC and were a favoured fruit of kings and [[Emperor of China|emperors]]. As of late, the history of cultivation of peaches in China has been extensively reviewed citing numerous original manuscripts dating back to 1100 BC.<ref name="Layne">{{cite book|url=,+Production+and+Uses&source=bl&ots=_vHzntVguH&sig=qP8dSuyP5xD54VwK0a6hGwp-9Cw&hl=en&ei=yEZtTKuPBcL_lgebosivDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CCgQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q&f=false|title= The Peach: Botany, Production and Uses|first1=

Its English name derives originally from the [[Latin]] ''malum persicum'', "Persian apple", which became the [[French language|French]] ''pêche'', then ''peach'' in [[Middle English]].<ref>[]</ref>
The peach was brought to [[India]] and Western Asia in ancient times.<ref name="Ensminger">{{cite book|url=|title=Foods & nutrition encyclopedia|first= Audrey H.|last= Ensminger |publisher= CRC Press|year= 1994 |isbn= 0849389801}}</ref> [[Alexander the Great]] introduced the fruit into Europe after he conquered the Persians.<ref name="Ensminger"/> Then it was brought to the [[Americas]] by Spanish explorers in the 16th century, and eventually made it to England and France in the 17th century, where it was a prized, albeit rare, treat.{{Citation needed|date=July 2010}}
The [[horticulturist]] George Minifie supposedly brought the first peaches from England to its [[British America|North American colonies]] in the early 17th century, planting them at his Estate of Buckland in [[Colony of Virginia|Virginia]].<ref>[ George Minifie]</ref>
Various [[Indigenous peoples of the Americas|American Indian]] tribes are credited with spreading the peach tree across the United States, taking seeds along with them and planting as they roved the country.
Although [[Thomas Jefferson]] had peach trees at [[Monticello]], United States farmers did not begin commercial production until the 19th century in [[Maryland]], [[Delaware]], [[Georgia (U.S. state)|Georgia]] and finally Virginia. [[California]] today raises 65 percent of peaches grown for commercial production in the United States,<ref>[ Peaches in California]</ref> but the states of [[South Carolina]], [[New Jersey]], [[Georgia (U.S. state)|Georgia]], [[Michigan]], [[Pennsylvania]] and [[Washington (state)|Washington]] also grow a significant amount.<ref>[]</ref> Italy, China, India and [[Greece]] are major producers of peaches outside of the United States.
In 2010, a team of researchers at [[Clemson University]], in South Carolina, announced they had sequenced the peach tree genome (doubled haploid Lovell).<ref>[ Peach genome completed] United Press International, April 2, 2010, Retrieved August 30, 2010</ref><ref>Sosinski, Byron et al (2010) [ Peach Genome] Genome Database for Rosacea, Retrieved August 30, 2010</ref>
