Do not put your peaches in the refrigerator before they have softened – they can turn mealy! After they have softened on your counter, you can refrigerate them safely for 1-2 weeks to extend their life.
Be careful when caring for your peaches – they bruise very easily! Try to use any bruised or softer fruit first. Our peaches are already washed, but we always recommend a quick rinse.
Let them soften. Lay them out for 1-3 days on your counter stem-side down without stacking them. The warmer the room temperature is, the quicker they will soften. Peaches are ready to eat when they are soft to the touch and have a strong, peachy aroma.
