What is the difference between Clingstone and Freestone Peaches?
While both freestone and clingstone peaches are sweet and juicy when ripe, there is a difference between the two in how the fruit’s flesh clings to the pit.
A freestone peach will have fruit that easily pulls away from the pit, while the clingstone fruit will, as the name implies, leave a bit of the fruit clinging to the pit.
Freestone peaches are generally a bit larger than clingstone and are delicious when eaten as a whole fruit or used in baking and canning. Clingstone peaches are typically a bit smaller, juicer, and slightly sweeter than freestone peaches.
