How to Choose Ripe Peaches

  • Try to buy local peaches. Since most peaches are picked while slightly underripe, buying local ensures the freshest peaches that are picked at peak time.
  • Ripe peaches will have a slightly sweet smell. If you can’t smell anything, it isn’t ripe.
  • Look for a nice vibrant color without signs of green. If you see a green tint, it’s likely not quite ripe.
  • Ripe peaches will have a slight give when squeezing. Note: Peaches are shipped extra cold to halt rippening, so they may feel hard in-stores.

How to Quickly Rippen Peaches

  • To quickly rippen peaches, leave them out on the counter (away from direct sunlight) for 1-2 days. When slightly soft, they are ready to eat. If not eating right away, move the peaches to the fridge to keep up to 5 days.
