Stone Fruit

Stonefruit can only be grown in glasshouses in Ireland and are not grown on a commercial basis. Here at Keelings we import peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines and cherries from warm temperate and subtropical regions of the world.

Stone Fruit

Keelings Tip

For peaches, choose those with a slight softness along the seam of the fruit. For plums, a dull bloom on the skin is normal and on many varieties indicates freshness. Stone fruit that feel heavier will be juicier.

Health Benefit

Apricots are loaded with beta-carotene. They should be eaten fresh whenever possible by those suffering from any infection particularly in the respiratory system.

When In Season

Imports are available year round

How to Store?

Ripe stonefruit should be stored in the fridge.
