Peach question

We got peaches! Sweet huge peaches. On some of them, there is a clear hard little blob on the outside of the skin. On dissection, the spot on the skin and the clear blob are the only blemish, there is no tunnel on the inside. There are quite a few with these clear blobs, about the size of a pea and smaller. Any ideas what they are?

A small insect might have sampled the fruit without boring into it. The tree might have received inconsistent watering, causing a small tear in the skin. Some kind of mechanical injury occurred, such as twigs hitting the fruit when the wind blows. In any case, some juice from the fruit -- containing a significant amount of sugar -- leaked through the skin and dried, allowing the sugar to crystalize.
Generally, these crystalized juices can be easily scraped away. If there is no sign underneath that an insect entered the fruit, enjoy.
