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.
