    "without syrup" no existe, todos los duraznos en lata vienen con líquido: hay light syrup y también en jugo.

    I wouldn´t mention the word "syrup" at all and certainly not "heavy."
    Peaches previously were canned with a lot of unhealthy sugary syrup. People´s tastes changed and "syrup" became a dirty word. So the sugar was reduced and they were called "peaches in light syrup."
    Now the companies try to avoid the word "syrup" on the label completely but can´t (in UK and I assume the US) call them "natural" as they are still in a light syrup to maintain the flavour.
    So they decided to call them canned fresh peaches (as they were fresh before being canned).
    To me it´s an oxymoron like frozen fresh peas! I suspect that in Spain "duraznos en lata" doesn´t sound too appealing.

    Which reminds me that when I started living in the US in 1979 I looked for them in the supermarket and none of the cans would state "natural" and I didn't want them with "syrup"... :)
