 Tree Ripened

 Fresh Peaches 

Apple Hill Orchard has grown peaches for decades. We grow white and yellow peaches, as well as yellow nectarines! All of our peaches and nectarines are freestone. 

2022 Update
Due to our growing climate, we do not always have peaches. Peach trees bloom 1-3 weeks before apples trees. This early bloom period often leads to spring freezes. In 2022 we experienced several small freezes that damaged our peach crop. It's difficult to judge the size of the crop until peaches gain in size. At this time, we have had to decide not to open for peaches in 2022. What peaches we do have, we are picking and prepping for use in our Bakery this fall.

When is peach season? 
Peaches begin ripening around early July, and we pick peaches until mid August. Nectarines ripen mid to late July and into early August.

What does freestone mean?
At their center, all peaches have a pit. If the peach is cut in half and the pit easily pops out, it is freestone.
