In popular Chinese mythology, The Queen Mother of the West lived in a golden palace by a lake, where she grew peaches. It was said the fragrance of the peaches of her palace could be smelled miles away, and the fragrance could put even the unhappiest person to sleep. She also possesses a peach tree which, every 3,000 years, produces peaches, known as p'an-t'ao (Chinese: flat peach), that grant immortality.

Every 3,000 years she invites all the other gods to partake of a banquet with peaches for dessert.
