The season’s first Peaches, Nectarines and Plums have arrived at the Summer Certified Farmers’ Market. Choose from a wide variety of stone fruits, all fresh from the farm(s), including white peaches, yellow peaches, white nectarines, yellow nectarines, and many plum varieties you just won’t see in stores. They’re all hand picked, and locally-grown.
Did you know: There are two types of stone fruits – Freestone and Clingstone. Freestone stone fruits literally have a free stone, meaning the stone or seed kernal is relatively free of the flesh, and can be removed from it with ease. Clingstone stone fruits have a clinging stone, meaning the stone is well attached to the flesh, and cannot easily be removed from it. Clingstone varieties are preferred as table fruit and for jams, because the flesh of clingstone fruits tends to be more tender and juicy throughout.
Price: $2 per pound and up.
