Plump and bursting with nectar, our organic doughnut peaches are sweet by name and sweet by nature. Juicier and superior in flavour (we reckon) compared with a regular peach. Plus their flatter shape makes them easy to hold while you enjoy that first luscious bite.

Cooking

There’s more to do with a perfectly ripe peach than eat it as it is. Halve, brush with honey and butter and bake until caramelised – about 20 mins. Enjoy with yoghurt, mascarpone or vanilla ice cream. Their fragrant sweetness also goes beautifully in a cobbler or crumble or elegantly arranged in a galette.

Storage

Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Ripen at home in a fruit bowl until soft and juicy.

Class

Our peaches are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).

Country of origin

Grown in Spain.

BBQ tips

Griddled peaches are simplicity themselves. Halve and stone them, lightly brush with some plain oil, place them on the BBQ and griddle them, face-side down, over a medium heat, until nicely marked. This should take about 4-5 mins; resist the temptation to play with them too much or they’ll stick or tear. Flip and cook for a further 4 mins or so, until softened – the skins will wrinkle and pull away from the flesh when they’re ready. Ideal served with cold yogurt, ice cream, or a few drops of rose water.
