A Longevity Peach or ShouTao, is a type of lotus seed bun. It is white with a red dyed tip with a crease along the side, mimicking the shape of a peach. The Longevity Peach is a representation of Peaches of Immortality. According to Chinese folk legends, these peaches ripen every thousands of years, and grant immortality to humans when consumed.
The pastry is typically served at birthday banquets to attendees.
