The Instacart guide to yellow peaches
There's nothing quite as divine as biting into a juicy yellow peach on a summer afternoon. A yellow peach has a distinct sweet flavor that stands on its own. The yellow peach is a round fruit with fuzzy skin and yellow, orange, pink, and gold colors. You'll sometimes see a light red blushing throughout the skin of the yellow peach. When you slice or bite into a yellow peach, you'll notice the flesh is golden-colored and clings to a central seed or pit. The flavor of a yellow peach is sweet and aromatic, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid.
When you're at the market looking at yellow peaches, you may also notice lighter-colored white peaches near the yellow varieties. White peaches are a hybrid of the yellow varieties, are freestone, and have less tartness than you find in yellow peaches. While a white peach may have a sweeter flavor profile, the lack of sweet/acid balance makes them a less popular eating variety than the yellow peach.

Serve the pie or cobbler warm with vanilla ice cream for a succulent dessert. Peach ice cream or sorbet makes for a refreshing dessert. Slowly simmered or stewed peaches with a touch of wildflower honey and cinnamon go nicely with pork or lamb dishes as the sweet and tart flavors meld with the stronger flavors of the meat.
