It's shared space, but in a household of three people total, there's long stretches of the day when I'll be the only one in or near the kitchen. And it only takes a few minutes to dare to eat a peach.
I don't need to eat over a sink. It's just easier.

The peaches are in a bowl on the counter next to the sink. Why take it somewhere else to eat it, along with a plate and an adequate supply of paper towels, when I have the sink and the paper towel dispenser right there? Especially when it's only going to be for a couple of minutes anyway.

I can't think of a reason to spend more time coming and going, getting ready and cleaning up, than I'll spend actually eating that peach. But YMMV.
Does your garbage disposal handle cherry pits? I've never even tried that.

We don't have a garbage disposal.

Primitive, I know, but we've been able to manage somehow.
