There was once a magical orchard that held the sweetest peaches on earth. It was said that if three close friends each ate three of those peaches on the third of March, then they would gain wisdom, fame, and fortune.

A group of three friends decided that they would brave the challenges and eat the sweetest peaches together, on the third day of March. They traveled far, braving many trials in order to reach the legendary orchard.

However, when at long last, they reached the orchard, they found that the orchard had already been harvested for the festival of the dieties. They had lost all hope, when an elderly gardener told them that there were plans to plant a new peach orchard. However, the number of magical peach seeds was low, and the orchard would need to be planted soon if they wished for it to have the special magical powers of its parents. Believing the three friends to be honest men, the gardener offered them a deal. He would trade them a magical peach for three magical peach seeds. He told them that the peach seeds could sometimes be found in the orchard.

Delighted with this opportunity, the three friends set out in the forest, searching all over the forest for the seeds. Unfortunately, no matter how hard they looked, they couldn't find a single seed. Fortune smiled on them that day though, for after searching high and low, they were able to find six perfect magical peaches. While the six peaches were nice, they were not enough to grant the three friends wisdom, fame, and fortune.

Is there a way to obtain the extra peaches they need? Or will they return home with their task unfulfilled? Post your answers in the comments.
