As usual, our PF1 peaches started to ripen before we figured on. Well anyway, we checked them out yesterday morning and picked some ripe PF1’s. They are delicious–trust me here! Keep in mind that sliced peaches on ice cream, as I have said before, is not only a delicious treat and easy to prepare, it provides just about all the vitamins, protein and minerals one needs in a meal. Of course, a bit of whip cream on top can’t hurt! Such a meal is especially welcome on hot sticky days, which is forecast for the upcoming weekend!
Our PF1 Flamin’ Fury peaches are one of the earliest peach varieties in existence (ripening over 3 weeks before Red Haven peach) and in my opinion PF1s are one of the tastiest and juiciest peaches around! They are a semi-cling stone fruit, but sometimes they get so large so quickly they develop split pits. This doesn’t effect the flavor or texture at all though!
