Fresh Peaches or Nectarines
June 10, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
This is a great deal. Four pounds of big, beautiful, flavorful peaches or nectarines (depending on what’s most ready for harvest each day), packed in an easy-to-carry box, for the excellent price of $5.99*. Our supplier is a third generation California tree-fruit grower, and they grow some of the best stone fruits (peaches, nectarines, plums, etc.) we've ever tasted. For this box, they're providing us with big fruit that's juicy and incredibly flavorful. The fruit is shipped to our stores very cold, so it stays as fresh as possible — don't make the mistake of thinking the fruit isn't ripe. It is. Leave it at room temperature for 24-36 hours to let the fruit soften and really shine. We've sold approximately 45 million of these Peaches and Nectarines in the last five years, so they must be good!
*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Peaches and Nectarines are $5.99 in our East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores and $4.99 in our West Coast and Texas stores.
