Organic Peaches Bursting with Flavor
One of the best flavors of summer is a juicy, tangy-sweet yellow peach. Yellow peaches are yellow-orange on the inside, with a deep-red blush exterior and fuzzy skin. There are many varieties of yellow peaches, each grown to fit a certain climate and harvest window.
Peaches are native to China, but the name “peach” comes from Persia, which cultivated the fruit and eventually transplanted it across Europe. The French introduced peaches to the United States, where many states continue to grow the fruit today.
Stemilt’s yellow peaches are organic peaches. We farm all of our peaches organically in Washington State.
Exterior: Red blush to full red over a yellow background; sometimes mottled depending on variety
Interior: Bright yellow-orange flesh with red streaks around a single stone
Experience: Very sweet, with mild acidity and abundant juice
Stemilt grows its yellow peaches organically under the Artisan OrganicsTM label.
