FREEHOLD - New Jersey peaches are hitting their prime in the Garden State from now until mid-September.

It's the best time of year to find tree-ripe peaches, and Battleview Orchards in Freehold says it has the best crop that it has had in years.

"Everybody thinks that peaches are done and it's back to school time. And it really isn't," says Scott Applegate. "Some of your best peach varieties and flavor are in September."

Experts say color is the best indicator of a great peach. Look for a red and cream colored skin.
