Late Harvest California Peaches

We are coming to the end of the California peach season and the transition from early season peaches, to late harvest peaches.  Late harvest varieties are usually picked the third or fourth week in July. They are lower in moisture and less juicy than early varieties but they are full of flavor. The peaches have been on the tree longer resulting in a more solid piece of fruit.  Don’t wait until they get too soft though, this could result in a mealy peach.

Late harvest peaches eat less ripe and more firm than early varieties.  Freestone varieties will pull apart easily after making a slice and the pit will fall out.  Some of the most popular late harvest varieties are the O’Henry and Summer Lady at Earl’s Organic now!

We will be sampling the Summer Lady peaches at the Academy of Sciences Nightlife Summer event this Thursday, August 2nd from 6-10pm. Hope to see you there!
