Helpful Peach Definitions:

Cling: Peaches that will not come off the pit, except with a knife. Some of our peaches are clings, but are wonderful sliced and served on ice cream or cereal, they are full of flavor and juice making them a treat. Cling is not a “bad word”.

Semi-freestone: Peach that will come off the pit when fully ripe. Usually, early season peaches.

Freestone: Peaches that can be twisted and will fall off their pit. If you are going to can, you will definitely want to wait for the Freestones.
