Pretty as a Peach
It’s been a rainy spring, but drier weather and juicy peaches are just around the corner here at the orchard. The first peaches of the season are already coloring up nicely and will be ready for picking any day now—and we’ll have a variety of peaches available all summer, all the way through Labor Day. Peach picking or not, the orchard is looking beautiful!
Clingstone peaches are just what they sound like: peaches that “cling” to their pits. These peaches are often used for pickling, but they are delicious no matter how you slice ‘em. These peaches are already ripening up for picking.
Freestone peaches, or peaches with flesh that separates easily from the stone, ripen later in the summer, and are easier to work with for canning and freezing.
