NOTE: Some of the peach orchards in Arkansas experienced below freezing temperatures in March of 2023. This can affect the crop because the trees had already begin to blossom. The farmers should know soon how much damage that this weather caused to their peaches.

There are several peach orchards in Arkansas to choose from. Peaches are grown all throughout the state with the highest concentration of orchards in Central Arkansas and in the Arkansas River Valley.

Arkansas Peaches

Arkansas is not a major producer of peaches so you will find that many of the peach orchards in Arkansas are small, less than 20 acres, and family owned.

Also, like strawberries, most of the peaches grown in Arkansas are sold locally.

Even though we don’t export our peaches to other states this doesn’t mean they aren’t good. In fact, in my opinion, a perfectly ripe Arkansas peach is one of the best foods in the world. They taste like summer to me!

If you want a sweet and delicious Arkansas peach you will typically need to go straight to the orchard or find them at your local farmer’s market. Some orchards offer pick your own peaches and some are pre-picked only. Many have both options!

When is Peach Season in Arkansas?

Many different varieties of peaches in grow in Arkansas which means that you will often find peaches ripening from June all the way through September. Of course, like with any crops, this depends on the weather.

Varieties of Peaches Grown in Arkansas

Some of the peach varieties grown in Arkansas are the Elberta, the Belle of Georgia, The Red Haven, and the Cresthaven…but there are many, many more! I prefer the freestone peaches myself just because they are so much easier to cut and eat…but they are all good!

If you want the best Arkansas peaches here is a list of orchards that you can visit!

When Will the Peach Orchards Open

Most of these Arkansas orchards post opening dates and times on their websites or Facebook pages.

It is very important to check before you go! Even during the peach season the orchards may close for a number of days in order to allow more peaches to ripen. They may even close early if they get “picked out.”

In other words: Always check before you go to verify opening days and hours.
