Why are peaches hairy?

The peach is hairy primarily due to its nature. The fuzzy cover of the peach acts as a kind of protection for the fruit. Not only does it help keep the small bugs away, but the added hair over the skin increases the surface area of the fruit, allowing it to control the moisture of the fruit. The hair makes the fruit more resistant to insects, diseases and protecting it from sunburn.
