Hood River Peaches
Our Hood River Peaches fruit gift box features 12 perfectly ripened, sweet peaches from Parkdale, Oregon. Choose from Saturn (doughnut peaches), Blushing Glories (yellow flesh), or White Ladies (white flesh). The short growing window for peaches in the Hood River Valley means they are available in our online store for just a few weeks a year – be sure to order early!
Storage and Handling Tips: All varieties of our peaches are best stored in a cool place such as a cellar or refrigerator. They will ripen best when stored at room temperature. To determine if they are ready to eat, use your finger pads to gently apply pressure to the fruit. If it absorbs a little pressure without bruising, it's almost ready to eat. When it's soft to the touch, and your finger makes a slight indent, it's ready to eat.
Culinary Tips: Our peaches are best enjoyed fresh. Slice and top on yogurt or ice cream. Add to oatmeal or granola. You can also preserve peaches by slicing and freezing or canning them.
Packaging: Each order of our Hood River Peaches fruit gift box comes with we 12 peaches packaged in a custom McCarthy Family Farm box made with recycled materials. They nest in a specially designed foam pad covered with crinkle paper, both of which protect the peaches during their trip from our farm to you or your loved one.
We offer FREE shipping anywhere in the continental United States. Please allow 2-3 days for delivery.
