Peaches

We have more than a dozen varieties, all freestone, ripening continuously from around mid-July through Labor Day.  Exact dates and fruit availability are largely dependent on temperature, rain and tree load - aka "Mother Nature".   Call us to find out how this season's crop of peaches is shaping up.

Plan to spend some time looking for that perfectly ripe peach; it's like a treasure hunt, some days.  Remember, beauty is only skin deep, just wait until you taste one of our tree ripened peaches!

A couple of hints, for your comfort when picking peaches....lightweight long sleeves, shoes, and a gentle touch.  When you arrive, our staff will share how to best choose and pick a ripe peach.

It looks as though there will peaches from several new varieties in 2015, and even more within the next three years.

Peaches - Yum!
