Red Haven Peaches

Sauvie Island Farms 
Pick Your Own Red Haven Peaches
 will open Wednesday, July 15.  

The crop looks excellent this year, the trees are loaded with beautiful sweet fruit.  This variety is great for fresh eating and many people freeze and can the Red Havens.  
Red Havens are classified as a 'freestone' peach, but the pit can cling a bit.

 Be selective as you pick the peaches as all are not ripe yet.  
If you do pick a few 'green' peaches, set them out, single layer, not touching each other, away from the sun, and they will ripen in a couple of days.  
Our Red Haven season usually lasts 10 days but this year everything is NOT usual....so don't wait.  It's time to come out and pick some sweet tree ripened peaches!  
Prices are the same as they have been for the past several years:  
$1.50 per lb.  
over 15 lbs  $1.25 per lb 
over 50 lbs  $1.00 per lb
