I have a peach tree in my yard that is covered in fruit. Most is still green. Some have yellow tinges and a few have red traces starting. All are still hard as rocks. So how do I know when to pick them? :confused:

Pick them when they are ripe enough to eat but before they get very soft. If you want to keep them around a few days before you can or freeze them, pick them a couple days sooner. They will ripen some after they are picked, but don't pick them when they are really hard.
