BOWEN PEACH

Bowen Peach

Buy Bowen: Please come see us at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Market. Our stand is in front of Restaurant Lago, just below 3rd Street Promenade on Arizona avenue.

Description: BOWEN is a cling, also called clingstone peach. These are peaches whose pit sticks to the flesh, as opposed to freestones, whose pits release easily. Firm, flavorful yellow flesh is juicy with good sweet-acid balance.

Season: Early August

Size: 24 to 32 per metric layer

Suggested uses: Because Cling peaches tend to be more firm than their freestone relatives, they are a great choice for peach pies. Bowen peaches are also excellent for grilling, jams, chutneys, and preserves, and can be used just like freestone peaches in fruit salad, tarts, and other dishes.

Shelf life: Store at 50 degrees for best flavor, 32 degrees for maximum shelf life. Good keeper for a peach.
