Yellow peaches are less sweet and meatier than white peaches. Nothing says summer like the tangy, run-down-your-face juiciness of a ripe peach! They are rich in antioxidants — especially vitamin C.
Gently assess the tenderness of the flesh by squeezing softly; a fully firm fruit will take at least a few more days to ripen. Soft fruits will need to be eaten the same day. Best stored at room temperature.
Yellow peaches are great for canning, cooking, or just plain eating after a quick rinse. Peach salsa is a colorful, delicious, and kid-friendly twist on a familiar sauce. Thinly sliced peaches that are not fully softened are great as a topping on salads, too.
