Snow White Peaches To Die For!

I love it when I bite into one of the first great peaches of the season. It’s like running into an old good friend that you pick up right where you left off. The Snow White Peach is that kind of friend! Typically peaches disappear in the winter time, with the exception of some peaches from Chile, but I have yet to have a good peach shipped from that far away.

During the course of the season, over two dozen varieties are grown, each with its own particular flavor.

Apricots...One of the First Signs of Summer!

Apricots are those beautifully orange colored fruits full of beta-carotene and fiber that are one of the first signs of summer. Although dried and canned apricots are available year-round, fresh apricots with a plentiful supply of vitamin C and are in season in North America from May through August. Any fresh fruit you see during the winter months have been imported from either South America or New Zealand. Relatives to peaches, apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh, not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet.
