Peaches are available year round in the produce section of your grocery store and you can buy canned peaches, but remember they contain added sugar when they're packed in syrup. Depending on your location, you might also find peaches at farmers markets.
Choose fresh peaches that are firm with unblemished skin. Most of the fresh peaches you'll find are freestone peaches, meaning the large stone inside the peach will come loose from the juicy flesh. You'll find a few different varieties of peaches, ranging from white to orange, with crisp to soft flesh.
Peaches make nice healthy snack when eaten alone or paired with cottage cheese or other fruits. They’re also terrific as in ingredient in fruit smoothies. Peach slices can also be added to ice tea, lemonade or plain water for extra flavor.
