TIP OF THE DAY #2: Picking Fresh Peaches

August 22nd is Eat a Peach Day. Here are tips to choose the perfect peach.

  • Aroma: The peach should smell sweet and perfumey.
  • Appearance: The skin should be bruise-free and covered with an even, downy fuzz
  • Handle With Care: Peaches are a very delicate fruit. Even if they feel hard, place them on top of all the other groceries in the bag to protect them from blemishes.

    To speed up the ripening of peaches, use the apple/banana trick in the avocado post below.

    Read the history of peaches: They originated in China.
