As Hill Country peach season winds down, Kiwanis’ Colorado peach sale ramps up

After a longer-than-usual season, the Hill Country peaches are dwindling, but there’s still a few chances to get some really good peaches before the season ends.

The Northwest Austin Kiwanis host two peach fundraisers every summer, one in July and another in September. Contributed by the Northwest Austin Kiwanis.

In Fredericksburg and Stonewall, you’ll still find a few growers selling the last peaches of the year, but if you can’t make it out to the Hill Country this week or weekend, you have a few days left to place an order for Colorado peaches that are part of the Northwest Kiwanis Club’s twice-a-year peach sale.

You’ll remember that I love these giant peaches that this civic group sells to benefit dozens of location nonprofits. They host one sale in July with Texas peaches, and in September, they sell 22-pound boxes of Colorado peaches.

This year’s Colorado peaches will be available to pick up from 8 a.m. to noon on Sept. 7 at Anderson High School, and the deadline to order them is Aug. 30. You place an order ($45) at nwaustinkiwanis.org/peaches. If you have questions, you can call Bob Kohls at 512-345-9496.
