Why are my peaches firm?Updated 2 years ago
Don't worry - they weren't picked too early! We pick all of our peaches when they are tree-ripe, so they need a little time to condition at home before they're soft and ready to enjoy.
This usually takes just a few days, but every peach is different. We recommend spreading the peaches on your counter and checking on them each day. Once they give a little when lightly squeezed, they're ready!
Once the peaches are soft, you can refrigerate them for up to a week. We recommend you don't refrigerate peaches that are still firm.
What about freezing or baking?
You can cook or bake with peaches before they condition, but we recommend you wait to freeze or can them until they've softened.
I thought they'd be soft by now.
If it's been a few days and your peaches still aren't conditioning properly, please contact our Customer Experience team and we'll take care of you.
