When is Peach Season?

In Michigan, peach season typically runs from early July through mid-September. That’s when you’ll find fresh peaches at Robinette’s!

How to Use Fresh Peaches

Whether you already have fresh peaches or you’re planning to get some, there are so many ways to enjoy them. We’ll list some of our favorites below!

Raw Peaches

Enjoy the natural sweetness and juiciness of fresh peaches as a healthy and refreshing snack.

Peach Smoothie

Blend fresh peaches with yogurt, milk, or a plant-based milk alternative and some ice to create a tasty peach smoothie. Have some overripe peaches? A smoothie is the perfect way to make sure they don’t go to waste. 

Peach Salsa

Dice fresh peaches and mix them with red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and a dash of salt to create a delightful peach salsa. Serve it with tortilla chips, grilled chicken, or fish.

Peach Salad

Add sliced or diced peaches to your favorite green salad for a burst of sweetness and flavor. Top it with goat cheese or feta, nuts, and a light vinaigrette dressing for a sweet and savory side dish. You could also add a protein like grilled chicken and eat it as the main dish.

Grilled Peaches

Cut peaches in half and grill them until they have nice grill marks. Serve the grilled peaches as a side dish, on a burger, or on top of ice cream.

Peach Crisp or Cobbler

Make a classic peach crisp or cobbler by topping sliced peaches with a simple mixture of oats, flour, butter, and sugar. Bake until the topping is golden brown and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Peach Tea

Add sliced peaches to iced tea or make a peach-infused simple syrup to sweeten your beverages. Throw in a fresh mint leaf for a refreshing summer drink!
