How to Store

Place firm, fresh peaches in a brown paper bag to ripen. Store at room temperature for two to three days or until slightly soft. If ripe peaches need to be stored, place in a plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper or drawer, away from vegetables for up to three to five days.

How to Select

Choose peaches that are firm to slightly soft when pressed. Skin color varies from golden yellow to dark reddish brown depending on the variety. Select peaches that are mildly fragrant because they will ripen into sweet delicious flavors. Look for well-shaped fruit without blemishes or soft spots.

Usage Tips

Wash peaches thoroughly before using. Peaches may be peeled, if desired. Peaches can discolor when cut, so if using in a salad, treat cut surfaces with an ascorbic acid color keeper such as pineapple juice or lemon juice.
