Hello. My name is Paege Chafin and I'm the owner and executive chef for Roman Gardens Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida and today we're going to talk about how you know when your peaches are ripe. The season of the year has a lot to do with how fresh your peaches are going to be and how good they taste. We've all bitten into a peach or a plum that was not quite ripe or it was too hard or had that funny bitter taste next to the seed. You can prevent that simply by looking at how much color is on the outside of your peach before you eat it. There are several different fruits in the peach family that you can go by color on, not just the peach. The peach is usually yellowish-orangeish with a red or burgundy outside on it and the more color you have of the red and burgundy, the riper your peach is going to be. So when you do bite into it, it should be very juicy and make sure you get a towel 'cause the juice should run down your chin and then when you get next to the seed, you still have that same sweet firmness that you wanted from the beginning when you were anticipating eating your peach, and that is the best way to know how your peaches are ripe and get the best flavor and once again, I'm Paege Chafin from Roman Garden's Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida. Have a great day.
