Will my peaches be ready to eat when they arrive?
We pick our peaches when they are tree-ripe, carefully pack them into boxes, and send them on their way to you all in the same day. They should be firm when you receive them at home and usually need just a couple days on your counter to condition. Conditioning is the term for letting the peaches soften.
Once they give a little when lightly squeezed, they're ready to enjoy or store in the refrigerator.
Peaches need warmth to condition. Because your peaches experience some toasty temperatures in transit during the summer, they might be soft and ready to enjoy when you open the box or the next day. It's important to check each peach every day and see if it's ready to enjoy or refrigerate.
