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.
Ready to enjoy a perfect peach pairing? Pick up our BF burrata and make one of these simple summer dishes:
Peach & Burrata Salad

2. Drizzle each tower with balsamic.
3. Top the towers with chopped basil & mint.
