Momo eating a moon peach.

The moon peach is a pale, round fruit native to Air Nomad territory but can also be found in the Earth Kingdom.[1] It was a favorite treat of Momo's.[2]

History

Moon peaches were among a series of fruits that Momo laid out for Sokka to eat while at the Southern Air Temple. However, before Sokka could eat the last moon peach, Momo jumped up and grabbed it out of his hand, prompting Aang to name the winged lemur "Momo".[2]

Moon peaches were mentioned by Katara when she tried to reassure Appa, who was worried about Aang and Sokka's mysterious disappearance into the Spirit World.[1]

  • "Momo" means peach in Japanese, which is a reference to Momo's preference for the fruit.
  • In the Avatar: The Last Airbender video game, Momo has to locate enough blue trees near an Earth Kingdom village to allow Team Avatar to collect six moon peaches, which are later used to feed a hungry Appa.
