We are currently growing 3 varieties that ripen from late July through late August. All varieties have very high natural sugar content and are low acid, making them unusually sweet and delicious.
There are more than 2,000 varieties of peaches. That’s a lot to choose from.
There is no better way to pick a peach (and spend a day) than taste testing peaches at your local farm market. There is a favorite peach taste for everybody.
To find the best peach, first take a whiff: a ripe peach should be sweetly fragrant. Next give the peach a gentle squeeze: a ripe peach won’t be too hard; it should be soft to the squeeze. Keep in mind that the color of a peach tells more about what variety it is than its maturity or ripeness. So don’t assume the best peach has a peachy color; it could be more white or greenish white than peach colored.
And remember that different peach varieties come to harvest at different times of the summer. So you should be able to find a ripe peach–of one variety or another–from late spring all the way to Halloween.
Once you’ve spent some time getting to know peaches, every visit after will be rewarding.
We have many varieties, all selected for their sweet and mild peach flavor. We pick these beginning in mid to late July with our peak harvest being around August 10th.
A rare find! These peaches look like donuts and they are just as sweet,
but they are good for you! White fleshed and very low in acid. One of our favorites.
