NATIONAL PEACH MONTH
National Peach Month recognizes the fuzzy stone fruit that provides us with a bounty of sweet goodness all summer long!
As an industry, the peach plays a mighty role in our food supply and economy. From orchard to factory, restaurants to bakeries and grocers, this fruit delivers. We enjoy them fresh off the tree and baked into our favorite desserts. Well-thumbed recipes leap off the page ready to be made as soon as the peaches are ripe.
All season long, the peach juices are running. Whether we are canning, baking or freezing, or even sending the family out for more, we can’t get enough of peaches!
