When to enjoy.

Stone fruits include peaches, nectarines, plums, and most fruits with a pit or “stone.” And there’s nothing like stone fruit when it’s handpicked in July or August. Pick up the classics or shake things up with donut peaches, plumcots, or Verry Cherry Plums. Our stone fruits come directly from the growers for a standard of sweetness you can taste. Make the most of the season by adding them to your favorite meals and desserts.

Tips.

  • Keep them at room temperature for up to a few days to preserve peak flavor and texture. Cold stops the ripening process, so refrigerate only if very ripe.
  • To enjoy right away, choose fruits that yield to gentle pressure. A slightly firmer fruit will ripen at room temperature. Once it is soft and sweet, refrigerate for two to three days.
  • Stone fruits freeze well. (Remove pits first.)
  • They make wonderful jams and preserves.
