This fruit is freshest in the summer months. Learn how to pick, use and store peaches:

Smell them before you buy -- aroma is the best indicator of sweetness.

Squeeze them -- their flesh should give slightly.

Ripen them, if necessary, in a paper bag set out at room temperature.

Store ripe fruit in the refrigerator in a plastic bag.

Serve them at room temperature -- warmth brings out their flavor.
