FAQs About Peaches
While there are many varieties of peaches popular ones include clingstone, freestone, white peaches, and yellow peaches. Clingstone peaches have flesh that clings to the pit, while freestone peaches have flesh that easily separates from the pit. White peaches have a pale, creamy-colored flesh, and yellow peaches have a vibrant golden-yellow flesh.
As with most produce, peach season varies depending on location. In general, peach season typically falls in the summer months. The exact timing can differ by a few weeks or months based on the specific location.
Give them a sniff! Ripe peaches are often characterized by their pleasant aroma. The flesh should give slightly when gently pressed, but it shouldn’t be too mushy. Avoid peaches that are overly hard or have greenish tones, as they may not be fully ripe.
If your peaches are ripe and you plan to eat them soon, store them at room temperature. If you want to extend their shelf life, you can place them in the refrigerator.
Yes! To freeze peaches, wash and slice them. You can peel them before slicing but I almost never do. Place the slices on a baking sheet and freeze them individually before transferring them to a freezer container.
