Chair of the Ontario Tender Fruit Marketing Board Len Troupe says they've been picking peaches for a few days now, and expect to be in full swing by next week.

Then, he says, we'll have peaches right through until the end of September.

Troupe says the rain is actually good, the peaches are a nice size and are getting the moisture they need.

When you do pick up a basket he recommends putting a few on the counter to eat, then put the rest in the fridge to keep them from ripening too fast.
