Did you know? Utah peach season has finally arrived! We’re pretty biased, but Utah peaches are simply the best. Our cool nights and soil conditions are paradise for peach trees and we think Utah produces the most delicious peaches we’ve tasted. Keep an eye out for local peaches reaching Harmons locations next week. Some stores already have them, and all stores will have them by September 3.

How to select: Choose peaches with firm, fuzzy skins that yield to gentle pressure when ripe. Avoid blemishes.

How to store: Store unripe peaches in a paper bag. When ripe, store at room temperature for use within 2-3 days.

How it nourishes: Peaches are a good source of vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber.
