❁ Choose peaches that have an even, creamy gold to yellow color. Some varieties have a red blush but it may not always be a sign of ripeness.

❁ When ripe, peaches should have a slight “give” or softness. Handle peaches gently—they bruise easily. Bruised areas spoil more quickly.

❁ Fresh peaches may be at peak quality and lowest cost from June through September, depending on the variety and growing area.

❁ When shopping for canned peaches, look for “Packed in 100% juice” and “No sugar added” on the label. Canned and frozen peaches are available year-round.
