Uh oh…did you miss out on our succulent Sweet Georgia Peaches? Don’t worry about it – our Orchard Fresh Peaches are just as amazing and will stick around for the rest of the summer, so you still have plenty of time to order delectable, fresh peaches shipped!

If summer had a taste, it would have to be fresh peaches. But we’re not talking store-bought peaches, which are often hard and flavorless. We’re talking in-season Hale peaches, which are plucked at the perfect moment of sweetness for orchard-fresh fruit that’s oh-so-sweet and oh-so-juicy – a flavor experience! Your peach delivery from Hale Groves gives you fresh-from-the-tree flavor that makes them perfect for eating fresh out of hand, but that’s not the only way to enjoy our summer peaches. Here’s a few more you can try:

Hot Off the Grill

Grilled peaches are a special treat. Grilling caramelizes peaches perfectly and brings out their natural sweetness. And it’s actually quite easy to do – just cut them in half, remove the pit, brush them with oil, and grill them cut-side down on a clean, well-oiled grill at low or medium heat for 4 or 5 minutes. Voila! Before serving, you can brush them with maple syrup or honey, drizzle them with butter and sprinkle them with brown sugar, and serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an amazing summertime treat.

In a Salad

There’s nothing like adding fresh fruit to bring new flavor to your salads, cut-up peaches are a wonderful way to add a slice of summer to a light side dish. Try topping a bed of arugula with peaches, goat cheese, and balsamic dressing…delicious!

As a Topping for Dessert or Breakfast

You already know there’s nothing quite like a warm peach cobbler or peach pie, but if you want that wonderful flavor faster, it’s as easy as anything to add cut-up peaches to your ice cream, yogurt, and breakfast cereal.

As a Healthy Snack

This pretty stone fruit is more than just a sweet and juicy treat – it’s also a nutritional powerhouse! A medium-sized peach provides you with over 13% of your daily recommended vitamin C intake, pumping up your immune system and helping your body to heal in just a single serving. Even further, peaches help your body rid itself of free radicals, those chemicals that have been linked to cancer. And that’s just the beginning…peaches are also proven to help keep your vision sharp, aid your digestion, enable you to maintain a healthy weight, keep your bones and teeth strong, and much more!

How do Store Fresh Peaches

To get the most enjoyment our of your fresh fruits delivery, you want to be sure to store it properly. Your peaches from Hale Groves should arrive fully ripe, which means you can enjoy them at their peak of perfection right away. But if you want to save some for later, put them in a plastic bag and place them in the refrigerator. For the most flavor, let them come to room temperature before enjoying them fresh or in your favorite recipes.

If you want to store the peaches for much longer, pit the fruit then half or slice it up. Then, make a solution of a half teaspoon of ascorbic acid for each six tablespoons of water to coat the peaches with (this prevents darkening). Add two-thirds of a cup of sugar for every quart of fruit and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, then place the fruit in an airtight container or freezer bag before storing them in the freezer.
