Peachy Keen!

Peaches are making their debut at The Fearrington Farmer’s market tomorrow! The season becomes even more “peachy” when the peaches arrive from Kalawi Farm. They bring delicious peaches, and delightful, homemade peach ice cream in small, individual-sized containers.

The Fearrington Farmer’s Market has a few tips on selecting peaches:

Look for peaches with a creamy to gold under color that best indicates ripeness. The amount of red blush on fruit depends on the variety and is not always a sign of ripeness. Two other indicators of ripeness are a well-defined crease and a good fragrance.  Never choose peaches with a green under color since they will not ripen well. They will shrivel, become flabby and never achieve a good flavor.
