Colorado's Peach Harvest

Peaches are picked most of the summer from May to September in Colorado. I've seen more peach stands pop up in the past couple of weeks than I know what to do with. Palisade Peaches have been growing in the Grand Valley since settler John Harlow planted the first fruit trees in 1882.
