Michigan peaches are the finest summer fruit available from July up to September in the Midwest.
White peaches are slightly sweeter that yellow peaches, in fact, the white peach tastes just as sweet right after it is harvested as it does when it has softened, while a yellow peach gradually sweetens as it becomes soft. The flesh of a white peach is usually light pink or whitish with bright pink radiating from the center pit.
When selecting ripe peaches, look for skin with a creamy white background and no hint of green. Like traditional peaches the amount of red or pink will differ with each variety, but has no bearing on the ripeness.
