Peach Season 2022 in Grand Junction-Palisade Colorado

Real Estate Agent with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

It is time for sweet delicious peaches on Colorado’s Western Slope!

The peach harvest begins in late June and runs through the first of October. 

The most desirable Colorado peaches are Elberta, Haven, Polly, Reliance, Hale Haven and Ranger.  My personal favorite are the Hale peaches.  These are freestone which make them much easier to work with if you are jamming or simply sampling.

Shopping for Colorado peaches in the Denver Metro Area can be challenging.  Luckily, my daughter, Erin Bates, lives in Grand Junction which means I can visit Erin and also go on the hunt for the perfect box of peaches.

And while we are out, we always visit the many Palisade wineries.  One of our favorites is the Carlson Vineyards.  They have some of the yummiest wines.   I particularly love their Laughing Cat Tree Ripe White.  This blend is made from – yep you guessed it – tree ripe peaches.

I will be heading west soon with lots of room in the cargo area for peaches, wine and whatever else I can’t live without.

 Hi Belinda! Peach season was on of my very favorites when I lived in the Vail area - and honestly still is today.  I bough a case of organic peaches and OMG they are soooooo delicious.  I'm going to look at a few recipes later and make something yummy!  My friends used to tease me because everything I made included peaches during that season!  Nothing better than fresh peaches from CO!!

They are certainly addictive :)  Even Maverick loves peaches.  Right now he is having to settle for a blueberry or two at lunch time.

That's funny!  Our dogs have a limited diet so no peaches for them!  They had turned into little hound dogs about food and that was not a good thing!

Hello Belinda - Happy Hunting for necessary provisions.  And watch your speed on the journey - make sure the only fuzz you find on your way is on the peaches.  Har-dee-har-har.  🙃

Hi Belinda,

Those peaches look delicious.  What a great way to spend the day out and also visiting the vineyards.

Hi Belinda - I love peaches and during the season I have at least one a day. I may make a blueberry-peach cobbler this week.

Good morning, Belinda... I'm not much of a peach "fan." Unless, we are talking a French tart made with peaches and marzipan!

It has been a long time since I have had a peach.  They are so darn delicious, I really should start eating them more often!

Brian England I picked up some awesome organic peaches and OMG they are so good!  Be sure to get some while they're still in season!

Belinda I made a yummy peach cobbler last night and Gary loved it!  On to the next recipe.  I'm thinking a peach tart this weekend.

These are the best peaches! They certainly give the ever-famous Georgia Peaches a run for their money!  My niece used to send us some of these peaches every year when she lived in Colorado! They are delicious!
