Peaches should be available through Mid - Aug. this year! Following is a list of the peaches we now grow and their approximate ripening dates.
Redhaven -- June 20 - July 05, 2012, Normally JULY 20 - JULY 31 - SOLD OUT - Our most popular peach and what everyone considers to be the first freestone peach. Botanically it is considered a semi-cling, we feel the early picked peaches and undermature peaches tend to stick to the seed. The later picked and soft ripe peaches tend to pull free easily from the seed like a freestone.
Redstar -- July 1 - July 12, 2012, Normally JULY 20 - AUG 3 - SOLD OUT - Freestone - Great peach with excellent flavor. Size is slightly larger than the redhaven.
Lucky 13 - JUNE 25 - July 12 , 2012, Normally JULY 25 - AUG 8 - SOLD OUT - Freestone - New for 2010
007 -- July 1 - July 15, 2012, Normally JULY 25 - AUG 2 - Freestone - SOLD OUT - One of our larger peaches we grow! And who can't love the James Bond Peach!!! :)
Starfire -- July 1 - July 10, 2012 Normally JULY 25 - AUG 5 - SOLD OUT - Freestone - Nice peach redhaven like peach, Slightly redder and more of a freestone than the redhaven
Contender -- July 15 - July 25, 2012, Normally AUG 10 - 20 - Freestone - SOLD OUT -This is probably our most popular and best known mid-season peach. It's no longer a contender, it's a champion now!
Coralstar -- July 12 - July 25, 2012, Normally AUG 10 - 21 - Freestone - SOLD OUT- A peach with a little more size than the contender, we are starting to hear more people coming in and asking for it by name year after year.
Glowingstar - July 12 - July 25, 2012, Normally AUG 15 - 24 - Freestone - SOLD OUT - Nice peach slightly smaller than Coralstar.
Encore -- July 22 - Aug 10, 2012, Normally AUG. 20 - SEPT. 5 - Freestone - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT, LAST PICKING MONDAY, AUG. 20TH, THEY WON'T LAST LONG 1 - 2 DAYS AT BEST - The last peach of the season is the best thing we can say about this peach! Personally every peach we grow before this one is better than this one. So our recommendation is don't wait till now to get your peaches unless you have no other option.
Nectar -- JUNE 25 - July 15, 2012, Normally JULY 25 - AUG 6 - SOLD OUT - Freestone - We've grown this white peach for years now. It's a consistently nice sized peach with that unique low-acid flavor white peaches are famous for.
Saturn -- Donut Peach - July 1 - July 12, 2012, Normally JULY 24 - AUG 2 - SOLD OUT - The most unusual shaped peach you've ever seen. Looks like you flattened a regular peach, dark red and if you removed the seed from the middle it would look like a donut. Our family has quickly found this peach to be one we look forward too for it's excellent unique sweet flavor. Be sure to sample one when your stopping by the market.
Summer Pearl -- July 22 - Aug 10, 2012, Normally AUG 15 - 24- SOLD OUT - Freestone - Our late season, white peach. Another great low acid peach with that classic white peach flavor.
