A note about peaches!
We have some of the most amazing peaches coming from Warrner's Fruit Farm in Niagara.
Warner's practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which means that they only spray when there is a problem to be solved. This uses less pesticides and often solutions allowed in organic farming
The fruit is TREE RUN which means that we are avoiding the fungicidal baths that occur at the sorting stations. The advantage, no extra fungicidal baths, fruit ripens longer on the tree since the shipping time is only 2 hours!
Caring for these peaches is a bit different, but definitely worth it.
Here are some tips:
When you get home, remove the peaches from their box. Some will be ripe and ready to eat. Eat them!
Peaches that are not ripe should be set out on newspaper, not touching and with the stem end up.
Keep an eye on them and eat or process your peaches when they are perfect. You won't be waiting long! Peaches can go in the fridge, but please note that the texture can change, especially if they are not yet ripe.
