Symbols - What does heaven look like

Peach

The peach takes on the symbolism of all fruit.  The peach tree, however, is one of the many trees used to represent the Tree of Life as such the peach can in some cultures [particularly the Chinese culture] be a symbol of immortality.

There is a Taoist legend that  tells of a tree that produces a peach every three thousand years. The one who eats the fruit receives immortality.
