Can I still eat this peach?

Bought a bunch of peaches from Superstore. Picked the unripe/hard ones with "smooth" skin and stored them in the fridge at home. Next day, the peaches have a layer of "something" white on them (see photo). Some have the white substance all over them. Can I still eat these peaches or should they be thrown out?

Looks good to me, just wash it off and cut it open if it looks bad on the inside throw it out

it looks good, in fact, if you find a fruit that is quickly spoiling, that means that it didn't get all the crap that farmers use these days to make the fruits look "fresh" and have a longer shelf life.

Don't put unripened peaches in the fridge, they will not ripen.

Leave them on the counter and in a couple of days they will be good to go.

Sadly they only last a couple of days before they turn bad. It's not really a fruit you can store for a long time.

So, buy peaches, let them sit for a couple of days, wash, peel, slice and eat. Sometimes I skip the peeling and slicing and just eat.

Don't peel it. The fuzz is the best part of a peach!

For the white on the surface I usually just brush it off with my thumb.

Agreed - same with tomatoes.

Put a tomato in the fridge and it's ruined.

Agreed. Yet many stores keep their tomatoes in the refrigerated section - along with peaches etc. Price does not matter - it seems to be happening everywhere. I won't buy them - and it makes me question many of their other food items.

Really? Peaches last at least a week for me.
I’ve never seen a peach go bad after buying one that was fine
