Will the peaches be ripe when I get them?Updated 3 months ago

Yes! We pick our peaches when they are tree-ripe, carefully pack them into boxes, and send them on their journey to you all in the same day. Whether you get peaches at a local pickup stop, or delivered to your door, they should be firm when you receive them. They'll need just a couple of days on your counter to condition if you want to eat them in hand. However, you can bake or cook with them right away.

Conditioning is the term for letting the peaches soften.

It usually takes just a couple of days for the peaches to condition when you get them. Once they give a little when lightly squeezed, they're ready to enjoy or store.
