Palisade Peaches are big, juicy, and sweet peaches from the western slope of the Colorado Rockies. Our family has owned orchards in Palisade for over 40 years. These Palisade Peaches aren't like anything you get from a grocery store. These are premium peaches and their quality is second to none. The peaches we receive are all freestone (with the exception of Redhavens which are mostly freestone/semi-cling) and they are all non-GMO. The orchard also has a Certified USDA Organic option available.

When you eat a Palisade Peach, it's best to have a paper towel under your chin or close by because you're going to need it!

The peaches are very easy to can/freeze, excellent to bake desserts with, used to make peach ice cream, delicious when grilled, used in salsa, or you just eat them right out of the box! And there's many more things you can do with them!

In 2022, we started ordering Bartlett pears from the orchard. If you like pears, you will LOVE these Palisade Pears. And if you don't like pears, be prepared to add a new favorite fruit to your list! The pears are picked while still firm and do take a little time to ripen which allows you to enjoy them for a couple of weeks!

Tree ripe peaches are extremely perishable and deserve special attention when it comes to care.  The peaches should arrive in your hands at varying degrees of ripeness.  In a typical box, a few will be very ripe and will be partially bruised from the journey.  These are probably the best peaches in the box and should be consumed immediately either over a sink or outside to avoid the sticky mess resulting from the juiciness!   Here are a few recommendations that will allow you to get the most satisfaction from our peaches:​


  • The most important thing you can do is sort your peaches and remove the foam divider as soon as you get them home.

  • ​When you first get your box of peaches, sort them as soon as possible to remove the ripest ones.  This is a simple process. Remove the lid and survey the top layer for peaches that are bruising; remove those to a convenient place for expedient consumption. Gently feel the rest of the top layer for other soft peaches immediately ready to eat.  Separate the ones that are immediately ready to eat from those that are firmer on the top layer.

  • Remove the foam separator between the top and bottom layer and repeat the above actions with the second layer.

  • Then, REFRIGERATE softer peaches if they will not be consumed right away. Leave the firmer ones out at room temperature to soften up; once these peaches soften, they should be refrigerated as well to reduce the chance of spoilage.
