Ripe and Juicy Idaho Peaches
This summer, sink your teeth into an Idaho peach and taste the difference of locally grown tree fruit! Our growing conditions are perfect for peaches. Idaho’s hot, dry days and cool nights allow for maximum sugar production and ultimate sweetness!
Local peaches are more flavorful than those shipped in from out of state because they are left on the tree longer and picked at peak ripeness. To ensure you find the freshest peaches in your area, look for the Idaho Preferred® logo.
Want to pick your own juicy peaches? Visit Kelley’s Canyon Orchard in Filer, ID they have u-pick or you can purchase directly from their farm stand. Look for Symms Fruit Ranch peaches at Whole Foods, Albertsons and Winco locations. You can also visit their farm stand and buy direct from the orchard here.
Idaho peaches are grown across the Gem State by many producers including: Garrett Ranches Packing, Gem Orchards, Henggeler Packing Co., Kelley’s Canyon Orchard, Northview Orchard, Purvis Nursery & Orchard, Ribier Gardens, Tyler’s Rocky Point Orchard, Symms Fruit Ranch, Williams Fruit Ranch and Wood’n Goat Garden. Visit your local farmers market to find peaches from a grower near you!
Our favorite way to enjoy this summer treat is fresh from the tree, but this versatile fruit is also delicious dried, frozen, grilled, canned or made into jellies and jams. Try some of our delicious local peach recipes like Peach Empanadas.
