Peach Picking Season

The Best Time for Peach Picking

peach picking

 

Summer is in full swing and one of the many benefits is the availability of fresh fruit. My favorite summer fruit is the peach. There is nothing more refreshing on a hot day than to bite into a juicy summer peach. By the time peaches make it to the grocery store they have been transported across the state (sometimes states) and been jostled around so much they aren’t at the peak of flavor.

Get that fresh flavor very simply when you pick them yourselves and now is the perfect time to go peach picking!

The Peach Picking Season starts in June and runs thru August but not all types of peaches are available at the same time.

Yellow Peaches are available Mid-June to mid September

White Peaches are available July to August

Donut Peaches are available Mid-July to August

Clingstone Peaches are available June – August

Freestone Peaches are available June-September

Before you go Peach Picking make sure to do the following:

Call the Farm to make sure the peaches are ready.

Find out if you need to bring your own containers

Bring enough containers so you don’t fill them up to high to prevent bruising.

Make sure to pack sunscreen to prevent sunburn or worse.

Bring something to drink and a light lunch if you plan to stay awhile.

Go early on the weekends to get the best selection.

Make plans for all the delicious peaches you will be bringing home.

    I love fresh peaches. Those darn peaches you get in the stores definitely don’t compare to fresh ones, that’s for sure. I usually visit the Amish to get fresh peaches and now that you have me hungry for some of that delicious sound White Rabbit Salad I will have to go look for some. Now, I am off to check out where I can find a place to pick some.

    I love fresh fruit. I think it might be my favorite thing about summer, the availability of all of the fresh and wonderful produce. I made a delicious peach and bourbon sweet tea over the weekend. I should have used some fresh local peaches!
