Peaches/Nectarines

Like our apples, our peaches are Eco-certified, grown using agricultural methods that preserve and protect our orchards’ ecology. Varieties available early in the season are classified as ‘cling-stone’, indicating that the sweet flesh of the peach clings to the pit or stone. ‘Free-stone’ peach varieties become available mid to late season. Peach & Nectarine picking is a great family friendly activity!

Season

Mid-July-Late September

Choosing

When buying or picking, look for a creamy or golden color. A ripe peach is fragrant, firm, but not hard. It will yield to a gentle squeeze.

Storing

Store fully ripe peaches in the refrigerator. Peel peaches by immersing the fruit in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon, then plunge into cold water. Slip off skins with the help of a knife. To slice, cut peaches in half around the center, not the natural seam. Gently twist halves apart.

Freezing

To freeze, peel and slice peaches, mixing 1 quart of fruit with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Pack in freezer bags or containers. To protect the color of sliced peaches in a salad or dessert, dip the slices in lemon juice.
