Question – Do fresh peaches have different storage requirements than store bought peaches?
Answer – Yes. Fresh peaches do have a short shelf life, so make sure and have a plan for your peaches once you’ve ordered them. After purchasing your peaches and arriving home, remove your peaches from the box as soon as possible. Place your peaches stem side down on a countertop in a single layer and keep them at room temperature until they are the ripeness you prefer. It is important to check on your peaches often since fresh peaches ripen so quickly. Putting your peaches in the refrigerator will slow down the ripening process.
