Apollo 17 Flown “Peaches” Space Food Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan. A sealed flexible pouch, 17cm x 17cm x 2cm overall, with a label on one side: “PEACHES/ 3 oz. cold water/ 15-20 minutes/ 1341” as well as a piece of Velcro for attachment to the spacecraft. First used on Apollo 10, the spoon bowl allowed water to be introduced through a valve, hydrating the enclosed food. These are quite rare, as most are held in institutions or private collections.
