14 varieties of organic peaches allow us to harvest continuously from late June thru mid-September
Use this schedule as a guide of when Palisade fruit typically ripens. As nature is unpredictable, and fruit ripens on its own timetable, contact us to confirm what we are harvesting if you are looking for a particular variety. To meet demand for more varieties of local organically grown Colorado fruit, Aloha’s orchards now produce nectarines, cherries and Santa Rosa plums.
