Do I have to buy a whole box of peaches?
Georgia Peach Truck offers whole boxes of peaches that customers are welcome to divide among themselves. The simplest way to enjoy a whole box of peaches is to eat the peaches fresh out of hand and share this unique summer experience with friends, family, and neighbors. Freestone peaches in particular also slice neatly into wedges for canning and freezing as well as cooking in cobblers and pies!
How big is a whole box of peaches?
Each box of Rolling Freestones® contains one half bushel of peaches by volume, and one half bushel of peaches weighs approximately 25 pounds. Larger peaches do not pack as densely as smaller peaches, so a box of larger peaches can weigh slightly less than a box of smaller peaches. The box itself is slightly larger than one half bushel with a fill gap that facilitates stacking several boxes without crushing the peaches.
How many peaches are in a whole box of peaches?
Each box of Rolling Freestones® contains one half bushel of peaches by volume, so the quantity inside a box will vary upon the size of the peaches from about 50 to 70 peaches in in most boxes. Share a box this summer, and cook, can, or freeze a box for winter!
Are the peaches organic?
Rolling Freestones® are picked and packed in Musella, Georgia at historic Dickey Farms, which produces conventional peaches that are non-GMO and globally certified for Good Agricultural Practice (GAP).
GAP standards require demonstration of an integrated pest management (IPM) program to minimize any application of pesticide.
- Fresh peaches are picked firm-ripe in order to transport without bruising or flat-spotting.
- Do not refrigerate firm peaches until they are soft unless you prefer to eat firm peaches.
- Soften firm peaches by spreading peaches a few inches apart on a flat cloth with the stems down and the tips up for about two days at room temperature.
- Soft peaches are good for about three days at room temperature or about a week in a refrigerator.
- Slice and freeze soft peaches to maintain peak flavor for months.
