When is Peach Season in Texas?

.

When I think of Summer, I immediately think about all of the fresh and delicious fruit in season, especially, ripe, juicy peaches. Peach season in Texas is from May to July. This is the best time of year to pick your own peaches. There are also blueberries and blackberries available for picking, in the Spring. Many of the farms that offer peach picking also have berries available for picking between March and early May.

Where to Go Peach Picking with the Family

.

There are lots of peach orchards in Texas. However, many of the orchards pick the peaches for you and you can purchase by the crate or the bag. I wanted to find a place where the family and I could pick our own peaches. I thought it would make for a fun experience. Since we are still socially distancing due to COVID, our family fun has been limited to outdoor spaces. A You-Pick peach farm near North Dallas is the perfect family adventure.

Best You-Pick Farms in North Dallas

.

We visited George Cornwall Orchard in Little Elm. It’s a small family orchard, with friendly staff. The best time to visit is Saturday morning, to get first dibs. You get a cardboard box and free reign to pick peaches and any other veggies you find on the farm. We picked about a dozen peaches and green tomatoes. They also sell peaches by the bag as well as honey. The orchard is cash only and the prices for peaches range from $5 for a quarter of a box to $20 for a full box.

The kids enjoyed picking their own peaches. They learned about farming and how the fruit is grown. The peaches were sweet and delicious. And the best part was creating a yummy dessert with our freshly picked peaches. It was a fun way to get out of the house and try something new. I intend to visit some more peach picking with the family before the season ends. If you are looking for a fun family-friendly activity, visit a local farm or orchard.
