Peach Varieties

Fresh peaches are just about the perfect food - they're low in calories, high in vitamin A, high in fiber and are sodium-free.  We suggest seving them fresh or include them in your favorite recipe. Fresh peaches are best if allowed to ripen before refrigeration. (They are fully ripe when slightly soft to the touch.)  McLeod Farms grows three types of peaches and 23 different varieties. See below for a general guide to our peach varieties and their usual availability.

Cling - The fruit "clngs" to the stone on these firmer peaches.  Some people eat the cling peaches like an apple.

Semi-freestone — The fruit pulls away from the stone when the peach is fully ripened.

Freestone — The fruit of the peach readily pulls away from the stone.  The freestone varieties are the most popular for canning and freezing.
