The nose knows
Picking the perfect peach is as simple as following your nose. A peach that smells fragrant and, well, peachy is the peach to buy. Next, look for smooth skin without a tinge of green: Any signs of wrinkling indicate an overripe peach, whereas green undertones point to an underripe one. I know you’ll want to, but try to avoid pressing the flesh of the peach—that road only leads to bruised fruit.
Did you know?
The temperate climate of the Niagara Fruit Belt serves as the perfect place for peach trees to flourish. This prolific peach producing area yields over 80% of Canada’s summer supply.
