Peaches are members of the almond family

Sometimes family members do not look as similar as they are. Take the prunus family, for example. In it are the peach and the apricot, two similar-looking and tasting fruits. However, the almond, which looks, tastes, and feels nothing like the other two members of the family. Making things even weirder is the fact that roses and almonds are also related, making peaches, roses, and almonds all related. Next time you think someone in your family looks like they do not belong, just think about the poor almond and all of its weird relatives.
