In Chinese Folk Tales

In Chinese folk tales, the peach symbolizes longevity and immortality (Elio's eternal love for Oliver). For many Western cultures, it can also symbolize youth, love and fertility (all Elio's characteristics). The first Italian-English dictionary (1598) offers the following definition of "pesca" (peach): "A young man's bum" (the fruit's shape reminded Elio of Oliver's body). At last, some say that Renaissance artists symbolically used peaches to represent a heart, and a leaf attached to the fruit as the symbol for tongue, thereby implying "speaking truth from one's heart" (in the scene where Oliver almost eats the peach with Elio's semen, Elio then burst into tears, showing the truth in his heart: Oliver is all that he wants and he doesn't want him to go).
