1. Gently feel the peach with your fingers 用手指輕觸蜜桃

If it is soft, the peach is ripened. On the contrary, if the peach is still firm to the touch, it’s not ready. But be aware of the different types of peaches, some are firmer while some are softer. 

若蜜桃腍身即代表成熟;相反,若蜜桃仍非常結實,則代表蜜桃未完全成熟。但要注意,部分品種本身較實淨,部分本身就較多水分及偏軟,所以要多了解水蜜桃的牌子。

 

2. Observe its color 留意蜜桃顏色

If the peach is green or even has any hint of green left on it, it is not ready yet. But if it turns into yellowish red, and the top part of the peach has turned darker, the peach is ready to be eaten. 

若蜜桃表皮有青色,即代表太生。但當蜜桃的色澤轉成紅紅黃黃,和蜜桃頂部尖端的地方轉為深色,便代表蜜桃已成熟並且可以食用了!

3. Smell the aroma 聞聞桃香

When the peach gives off a sweet aroma, it’s a good sign that it’s ready to be enjoyed. 

當蜜桃散發出自然、誘人的桃香時,代表蜜桃已經熟透了。

What should you do if the peach is not yet ripened?如果買到的蜜桃還未成熟,那怎麼辦?

The best way to ripen a peach is to leave it on a counter at room temperature for 1-2 days. If you want to speed things up, pop the peach in a paper bag, or use nylon cloth to cover it. With these tips, you can easily enjoy sweet and juicy peaches! 

最佳催熟蜜桃的方法其實就是「天生天養」- 把它放在室溫中,讓它自然熟成約1-2天。 若要立即享受豐郁多汁的蜜桃,您也可以把蜜桃放進紙袋,或用尼龍布包裹著蜜桃。知道以上的小貼士,便能享受多汁甜美的蜜桃。
