Fuzzy Fruit a Colorado Favorite
August is Colorado Proud Month. Celebrate by enjoying a variety of fresh local produce, including peaches. Colorado ranks sixth in the nation for peach production, growing nearly 28 million pounds each year. Choose peaches with firm, fuzzy skins that yield to gentle pressure when ripe. Peaches are sodium free and a good source of vitamin C. Store unripe peaches in a paper bag. Look for Colorado peaches at your local grocery store, farmers market or at restaurants across the state.
