Pick Your Own Peaches 2019

Peaches are here!

Peach picking is a great adventure. Here in New England peaches are generally harvested in July and August.

Plan your peach picking in the morning to ensure you get the best crop. Once you arrive at the orchard, you’ll be given a container and directions to the location of the peaches. Peaches are completely ripe when they turn a reddish hue. Make sure you pick them from the tree – don’t pick them up from the ground.

Every orchard will have different peach varieties. Cling peaches have fruit that attaches to the pit. Freestone peaches have fruit that is not attached to the pit, which makes them easier to use for baking or canning.

Here’s a great recipe to get you started: Cinnamon Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone.
