Peaches

Come try the peaches at The Peters Orchards. Our market is known for our sweet and delicious home-grown peaches. We grow many varieties of white and yellow, cling and freestone peaches. Because we grow all of our own peaches, we can let them tree-ripen and pick them at optimal sweetness. During the peach season beginning in July–September, we hand pick our peaches daily. Some of our peach specialties include heirloom varieties such as Red Haven, Sun High, Loring, Elberta and the more unique varieties such as donut peaches and sub-acid peaches like Sweet Dream.
