No waiting necessary. No guessing when the fruit is ripe. Why? You can eat White Peaches right away. White-flesh Peach varieties are low in acid so the natural sugar comes through in the flavor from the moment they are picked. Firm and crunchy fruit is still tasty! White Peaches will stay just as sweet but become chin-drippingly juicy when allowed to soften at room temperature until they give to a gentle squeeze.
