Peach Guide

Peaches Now In Season

Now through July, Texas peaches are at their peak of sunny flavor and freshness in your H-E-B Produce Department. They don’t just taste good—they’re also good for you. Their rich color signals they’re packed with beta-carotene, which naturally help keep you healthy. A serving of peaches delivers at least 10% of your daily vitamin C requirement. And contain just 30 to 40 calories per half cup.

 

How to Select
Choose peaches with a consistent yellow-orange color that doesn’t have blemishes or soft spots.

How to Store
Ripen peaches at room temperature, then store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag for up to five days.

Texas vs. California Peaches
Did you know Texas peaches are slightly smaller than their California cousins, which makes them a perfect grab-and-go snack. And because they’re locally grown and don’t need to travel a long distance, they get to naturally ripen on the tree. That extra time spent soaking up the Texas sunshine makes them especially juicy and sweet.

How to Freeze
Before freezing peaches, blanch in boiling water for one minute. Place in water to loosen the skin. Slice peaches and sprinkle them with lemon juice to prevent browning. Freeze in airtight bags or containers.
