Wawona Peach Month 8.2.22

Learn the History of National Peach Month!

National Peach Month has been celebrated every August since 1982.

National Peach Month History

In June of 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared August as National Peach Month. Peaches are a great source of vitamins A and C, and they’re also great for your gut. The president wanted to celebrate this delicious and healthy fruit by dedicating a month to it. Many people celebrate National Peach Month by attending a peach festival, going peach picking, or baking peach desserts.

You can help your customers celebrate National Peach Month by partnering with Wawona. Wawona offers frozen peaches in bulk, which are great for restaurants and schools. The peaches can be thawed and served as fruit, or they can be used to make fruity desserts, such as peach cobbler, peach ice cream, peach crumb bars, or peach pie. We offer our peachs in a variety of different styles: halves, sliced, diced, bits & pieces, puree, and more!

Here are Four Delicious Ways To Enjoy Peaches

By Emily Parent, RD, LD

Summer is here and do you know what that means? Peaches. While I love all in-season summer produce, to me there’s not much that beats the deliciousness of biting into a fresh peach and having juice run down your hands. As a produce enthusiast, not only do I love consuming my peaches raw, but they add the most incredible flavor to a variety of summer dishes. Check out four of my favorite peach recipes below:

  1. Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Grilled Peaches – With grilling on everyone’s mind this time of year, why not add fruit to the mix. This recipe really hits the mark with flavor and nutrition!
  2. Grilled Halibut with Jalapeño-Peach Relish – If you’re trying to consume more fish these days, try adding peaches and jalapeños to the grill, too and make a knock-your-socks-off jalapeño-peach relish that goes well with just about everything.
  3. Goat Cheese and Roasted Peach Toasts – If you’re looking for a summertime appetizer to wow the crowd, this one has you covered!
  4. Peach Rosé Bellini – What pairs well with a delicious grilled dinner or appetizer? A fancy drink of course! With four simple ingredients, you have an elevated drink that is sure to please the crowd. Sober curious? Try replacing the sparkling rosé with sparkling cider.

Voila! There you have it—four tasty recipes that will have you eating (and drinking) peaches all summer-long!
