AUGUST HARVEST REPORT – Juicy peaches, fresh off the branch.
Our peach season is underway, and we have a great deal to be excited about this year. A cool spring and plentiful rainfall infused our peaches with lots of color and character. Unlike pears, peaches ripen top to bottom and from the outside in, which can make timing the harvest a bit tricky. Good thing we have such an awesome and experienced harvest team. They know exactly when the peaches should come off the branch, so we can harvest the peaches and get them ready to ship in just a few hours. That means you’re getting our peaches at their peak. When ripe, peaches have a distinct fragrance. If your peach doesn’t smell peachy, you’ll want to wait a little longer before eating it.
