Florida Peaches

June 11, 2010

Florida is well-known for strawberries, varieties of produce and citrus, but do you know low-chill peach varieties are also grown in Florida?  Low-chill peach varieties requires a shorter cold period of time and can produce an abundance of sweet peaches early June.

Many Florida peach farms are now open for u-pick in the Central Florida areas.  U-pick Farms allow citizens the opportunity to hand-pick their own fresh Florida-grown fruits.

Helpful U-Picks Tips

  • Dress comfortable & appropriate for season
  • Bring your own containers (some farms may provide containers)
  • Bring plenty of water (A misting water bottle will assist in lowering body temperature)
  • Wear plenty of sunscreen
  • Wear a shade hat
  • Wear closed-toe shoes to protect your feet from insects
