What is Brix?

When it comes to peaches, we take Brix seriously.

Degrees Brix (or Brix for short) measures the level of sugar/sucrose in produce. The higher the degrees, the sweeter the bite. Scales differ based on the produce being measured, and peaches range from 6-18 degrees.

BRIX SCALE

Scale Rating Profile
18 Excellent Unbelievable sweetness and flavor
14 Good Aromatic, juicy and packed with flavor
10 Average Good Flavor
6 Poor Inconsistent ripening and flavor
