Peaches are a fuzzy fruit native to northwest China. With one large seed, they’re a member of the stone fruit family. A peach is either freestone or clingstone, depending on whether the flesh sticks to the inner seed or easily comes apart.

Chilean peaches are available from November through March. They have a delicate aroma and a juicy, yellowish pulp. Chilean peaches make a refreshing addition to smoothies and salads, and pair nicely with poultry and seafood dishes.


Cholesterol-free, and low in fat and sodium, one average-sized peach contains about 37 calories. Chilean peaches are antioxidant-rich, offering an excellent source of vitamins A and C.

How to Select, Store and Handle Peaches

Smell your peaches! They should be fragrant.

The flesh of a peach should have a slight give, but use your whole hand to check vs. fingertips, since the fruit bruises easily.

Place firm peaches on the counter at room temperature and they’ll ripen within a few days

To peel a peach, place it in boiling water for 30 seconds and then shock it in ice water. The peel will come off easily.

Keep sliced peaches from darkening by adding lemon juice.



  • Display peaches red side up
  • Cross merchandiser with other items to encourage different usages
  • Never refrigerate peaches on display.
  • Shoppers might be surprised to see peaches during the Southern Hemisphere season. Display signage to draw attention to the display.
