I went to the produce market this morning and bought a half dozen peaches. Beautiful, rock hard, but with potential.

Usually I just stick them in the sunlight on a shelf. Got on line and asked the same question. Current method is to place them on a linen cloth stem end down out of the sunlight and let them ripen for about six days. 6 days???? Wow, can't wait that long but have to try it.

What got me going is my son came back from South Carolina with some beautifully ripe peaches that I consumed in a hurry. The best peaches I ever had though was when I was stationed in Memphis Tennessee, huge and perfect.

The best way is to leave them on the tree until they are actually ready. Ripening peaches off the vine is difficult and rarely rewarding. I haven’t had much luck, but have had some ripen inside a paper sack set out on the counter. I planted a peach tree in my front yard because like you I love perfect ripe peaches.

Me too Kim, probably my favorite fruit.

Going to give the "new" method a try. Wonder which will win out, temptation or common sense... Smile Try with four first.

I know what you're saying about those South Carolina peaches. Last weekend we stopped near the Georgia - South Carolina line on the way home from a wedding and got these. Most were perfect and went into a peach cobbler the next day, sorry no picture, it was well dug into before the thought even crossed my mind. We put the hard ones in a paper bag on the counter and two days later they were great.
