Summer peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots are ripening, but how do you know when to pick at their peak? Well you will need to use your sense of smell, touch and sight. Peaches will smell, well like a peach, they will give slightly when squeezed and no longer have any green undertones. Same holds true for nectarines, except they will smell like a nectarine. Ripe plums and pluots will have a sweet, fruity smell and give slightly when squeezed.
