Q.Are Peaches With Worms Safe To Eat?
Hello, I have a peach tree growing in my backyard. It has done well producing fruit since we planted it a few years ago, including this year. However, this year I’ve noticed tiny,nearly transparent, white worms in the pits when I cut them open. Are the peaches still okay to eat? My my mother is trying to convince me that I will have parasites growing in my stomach if I do. I’m freaking out a little since I already ate some of the fruit. Thank you for your help
