 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. 

2021 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 2021 we experienced 4 spring freezes that damaged our peach crop. We have a very light peach crop this year and will not be opening for peach season. 

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.
