Georgia Peaches

Georgia PeachesThere is nothing better than biting into a mouth-watering Georgia peach hand-picked fresh from the farm at Jaemor. We harvest over twenty varieties of peaches, each with their own distinct and delightful flavor. Our beautiful southern state, Georgia is recognized as the Peach State because of its diverse climates and range of regions from subtropical to mountainous, allowing farmers to produce the best tasting peaches. Jaemor has been farming Georgia peaches for over one hundred years with approximately 100 acres devoted to its peach orchard.

Peaches are produced for sixteen weeks out of the year with ripening dates beginning in June and ending in mid-September. When selecting ripened peaches, it is important to look for a creamy yellow or golden undertone. Also, if judging ripeness based on color, a white peach will turn “whiter” as it ripens. The red or blush coloring is not an indicator of ripeness; it is however an indication of that particular type of peach or of the amount of sunlight it received during maturity. Other ripening signs that have proven to be true are smell and touch. A ripened peach will have a pleasantly sweet smell and be soft to the touch. Not mistaken to be mushy, but the peach will give slightly when you squeeze it.    

Not only are Georgia peaches so incredibly delicious, they are also nutritious. Don’t let the sweetness of this little natural goodness fool you; they are a great source of antioxidants and vitamins including A & C.  Peaches are also rich in fiber, carbohydrates, potassium, iron and energy. With more than 80% of peaches composed of water, each serving is approximately 40 calories and contains less than one gram of fat. Georgia peaches are a little taste of heaven, virtually fat free and packed with nutrients.

These naturally sweet treats are also ideal for preparing a scrumptious dessert or fruit dish. If you love peaches, then we have the perfect recipes!! You don’t want to miss trying Jaemor’s famous Nanny’s Peach Pudding and a favorite of all southern residents, Peach Cobbler.
