This could also go under the title "Best Reason to Rob a Fruit Stand at Gunpoint." Some people don't get it. They look at a peach and think it's a piece of fruit. Those who know better are rejoicing, complete with sticky fingers and chins, since the peaches from the Sunnyslope area around Marsing are finally in season. An overripe one can be had for a song at any fruit stand in town, and as any of those shirtless fruit-stand dudes will tell you, a peach isn't ripe until it's overripe. Listen quietly and you may be able to hear slurping noises.
