When Are Georgia Peaches in Season?
This entry was posted on January 18, 2012.
Peaches. Sweet, juicy and flavorful. For most people, peaches are a Summer pastime that invoke memories of family picnics, sticky hands and ice cream on top of cobbler.
At Pearson Farm, we are constantly asked when Georgia Peaches are in Season. The answer is simple: the Summer.
The majority of our peaches are harvested from mid-May until mid-August. During the hot months in the Georgia heat, our farm is alive and well.
The early part of the season produces Clingstone Peaches; we then find that Semi-Freestone peaches are ready to be harvested; finally, we collect Freestone peaches. We make sure to only pick ripe peaches, those that are left on the limb until just the right time. This ensures that you get a tasty peach that is sure to suit any and all taste buds. Learn more about each variety of peach and their ripening dates!
Our more than 200 workers take the time to harvest peaches by hand. We make sure that every peach is ready to pack and ship directly to your door. We take extra care to avoid bruising during the shipping process, as no one likes damaged goods. Remember that there is a season and that peaches picked during that season will produce the most flavor and the best taste.
