Nutritional Benefits:

Feeling anxious? Reach for this sweet stress-reliever (known as the “Fruit of Calmness” in Hungary), packed with nutrients and antioxidants that form a natural sedative. Keep it as a go-to alleviator for when your little one has an upset stomach, too. Its high levels of pectin help soften the intestines and protect the stomach lining from ulcers.


Farmers' Picking Tips:

• The ripest peaches have a deep yellow background color, are firm, and separate from the branch easily.
• Red does not indicate ripeness. Firm peaches will often soften if left out in room temperature for a few days.
• Enjoy your peaches within a week from picking.
