When and where to pick & what to make with peaches


When Available:

Through mid-September


Pick Your Own at Local Farms:

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.
