Summer’s sweetest are ripe for the pickin’! Dig into the freshest, juiciest stone fruit summer has to offer. This season, you’ll find all your favorites, like delectably sweet peaches and plump cherries. Plus, you can explore a few unique varieties too, like plumogranates and peach-a-rines!
Here are some of the unique varieties to keep an eye out for:
Pick a perfect fruit
Tip 1: Not quite ripe yet?
Place your stone fruit in a paper bag, out of direct sunlight at room temperature. Check daily for perfect ripeness.
Tip 2: Extend Freshness
When your stone fruit is ripe, store in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. This will preserve freshness for an extra three to five days.
Tip 3: Whoops, too ripe …
Don’t toss your stone fruit yet! Roughly chop up the fruit, toss in a saucepan with a little water, a touch of sugar and dash of cinnamon. Cook down until fruit is soft and syrupy for a delicious fruit compote to top ice cream, waffles, pancakes, yogurt and more.
