Deciding when to harvest peaches is a matter of personal preference. While most people prefer tree-ripened fruit, fruit at this stage has an extremely short shelf life. Therefore, it may be better to pick the fruit two to four days before it is fully ripe. Here are some things to look for when harvesting peaches: When the fruit is easily pulled off the twigs, then it is probably ripe.

Ripe peaches will give off a pleasant, peachy smell.
