Summer Fruits – apricots, plums, yellow and white peaches, nectarines, donut peaches
Soon after cherry season, apricots &, plums ripen.
Usually, the first two weekends in July we are open to pick apricots and early plums.
Later plums & early yellow peaches ripen by mid-July.
Gradually donut peaches, yellow & white peaches & nectarines are available
from about the last weekend in July into early August.
Yellow & white peaches & yellow nectarines finish the season through the last weekend in August.
Peaches and nectarines grow in abundance at Prospect Hill Orchards. We have nearly 10 acres of peaches and nectarines, so there is enough for everyone – guaranteed! Hot summer days yield a wonderful crop of sweet and juicy fruits. They taste great and are so juicy that they drip down your chin! That’s the way peaches and nectarines are supposed to be.
We grow several varieties of white and yellow peaches:
Our white donut peaches variety is Saturn. Available ONLY in early August,
these small flat peaches are white and very sweet.
Yellow varieties include Redhaven, Newhaven, Salem, Canadian Harmony and Flaming Fury.
White Peach varieties are White Lady, Sugar Giant and Blushingstar.
We have 3 varieties of nectarines including Easternglo, Summer Beauty, and Fantasia.
