What is the difference between Clingstone and Freestone peaches?Updated 23 days ago

Note: All of our Home Delivery peaches are freestone varieties.

Clingstone peach varieties are available from mid-May to early June and do not "fall off" of the pit. They are wonderful for eating in hand and the pit can be cut around for baking or processing. 

Freestone peach varieties are available from mid June to early September. They come cleanly off of the pit when sliced down the middle, making them slightly easier to process.
