Donut Peaches

Beechwood Orchards

$4.69

4 pieces

Smaller, sweeter, and milder than their spherical counterparts, donut peaches are less fuzzy white peaches that are named for their squished shape that resembles a donut...it even has the white, cakey sweet interior! They are said to be more complex-tasting and flavorful, often described as possessing undertones of almond. Best eaten out of hand, these peaches would also make an incredible sorbet or addition to a fruit salad or summer sangria.

Beechwood Orchards is a fifth generation, family-owned farm specializing in various tree fruits that has been operating in Adams County for over a century. The farm is currently being run by David and Tammy Garretson. In 2005 they were joined by their son, Shawn Garretson, after he graduated from Penn State with a degree in Horticulture. Last year Melissa Allen, their daughter, returned to the farm. She brought her two small daughters Isabelle (3 years) and Cammy (20 months) who have already begun to show an interest in agriculture.
