  • Peaches ripen off the vine.  So they should not be soft when you pick them unless you intend to eat them immediately.  Put them in a brown paper bag and they will soften there in a day or so.
  • Store peaches on the counter, not in the fridge.
  • Don’t buy more than you can eat, slice or freeze at a time.
  • Peaches that are already soft on the tree are great for eating immediately but will not store.  Pick them and Eat them is our suggestion

 

Peach Varieties

An early-season, easy-care peach. This variety produces the largest white peaches, weighing up to one pound. The semi-freestone fruit has an attractive fiery red skin and sugary sweet white flesh. Tree is resistant to bacterial leaf spot. Ripens in early July. Self-pollinating.

Saturn Peach(Donut Peach)

Distinctive flat peaches that taste great. Also known as a “doughnut peach,” this uniquely shaped freestone fruit opens up to tender, white flesh with a mild, sweet flavor. Cold-tolerant trees bear heavy crops of peaches that measure 2¼-2¾” in diameter.

.GaLa Peach

One of the earliest-ripening freestones. An easy-to-pit peach that is as pretty on the ouside as it is flavorful on the inside. The fruit’s firm exterior has minimal fuzz, making it perfect for fresh eating. Kids love it! Also an ideal choice for canning. Ripens in mid July. Self-pollinating.
