Grab your family and head over to the nearest orchard to pick your own peaches.

If you love peaches (and who doesn’t), it is the perfect time of year to head out to the countryside and pick your own. There are a number of orchards in and around the Texas Hill Country that allow visitors to grab a basket and pick your own fruit.

Orchards usually provide their own containers, and while picking fruits could be a year round adventure remember that Mother Nature holds the key to your success. Be sure to call ahead, so you have a full understanding of the weather and fruit yields.

When selecting peaches, smell the fruit. The peach is a member of the rose family and should have a pleasingly sweet fragrance. Peaches should be soft to the touch but not mushy. Don’t squeeze peaches; they bruise easily. If you pick a few that aren’t quite ripe, place them on the counter at room temperature, and they will ripen within a few days.
