Taste the Sweetness in Our Summer Peaches
So how do we ensure that our peaches rank supreme? It starts with our dedicated farmers, whose passion lies in the thoughtful and meticulous growing of the exceptional fruit.
Unlike so many peaches you’ve regretfully eaten, our local peaches are tree-ripened until they’ve reached the peak of sweetness. Our multi-generational farmers we’ve come to know and trust have learned that timing is everything when it comes to picking only the perfect peaches off of their trees.

The Brix Scale – this system is the key to the sweet peach promise. Our farmers swear by it and now, so do we. It’s used on the farms, before the peaches are shipped to our stores, and then again, once we’ve received each batch of fruit.
So how does it work exactly? It’s a measuring system that essentially scores our peaches sweetness level throughout the entire season. Peaches range from 6-16 Brix degrees. The higher the Brix, the sweeter the fruit.
13-14 Extraordinary Sweetness: Aromatic, juicy, and flavor-packed. This level is our standard for peaches
11-12 Excellent Sweetness: sweet-tasting, flavorful (this is our standard though some may be sweeter!)
8-10 Good and flavorful
6-7 Inconsistent ripening and flavor
