PEACHES:

PEACH CARE:

Our peaches are spotpicked as ripe as we can handle them without bruising. To finish ripening, hold at room temperature or about 70 degrees F. to desired softness. To delay ripening, keep in the refrigerator. For a “peachier” peach taste, warm to room temperature before eating. One fresh peach has only 38 calories.

NECTARINES:

Genetically, the only difference between a nectarine and a peach is the lack of fuzz. Traditionally, nectarines have a distinctive, sub-acid flavor. Varieties including Summerbeaut, Fantasia, Flavortop, Red Gold, and Sparkling Red assure a supply of nectarines beginning July 25 and lasting until Labor Day. Nectarines may be canned or frozen like peaches. Substitute nectarines to add an unique flavor to any recipe calling for peaches.
