Luscious fruit, truckies, and Lucy Lawless feature in this Christine Parker short. Sal (Tania Simon) is gifted the titular peach and meets a saucy tow truck driver (Lawless) en route home to her toddler and domestics with boyfriend Mog (Joel Tobeck). Mog’s truckie mates arrive for beers; but include Lawless, whose presence (and peach-eating advice) stirs up desire: “Watch it rot, or taste it when it’s ripe.” A roster of leading NZ film talent worked with Parker on the film, and Lawless' turn (an early film role) hints at the cross-sexual appeal of Xena.

Watch it rot, or taste it when it’s ripe.
