Everything has been looking great so far. We are looking at the Colorado Peaches arriving sometime after Friday or Saturday July 26th or 27th.
Update from June 21, 2019:
The spring has been a little cool and the peaches are growing a little slow. The Colorado Peach season will be a little later. Talbott Farms is thinking that we will have the Peaches sometime after July 26th. Stay tuned as we get closer...
April 2019: The winter has been good for the orchard so far. They have had lots of snow in the mountains, so plenty of water will be available. When we get to mid May, then the orchards will be out of the woods for a late freeze that might damage the trees. Currently the Colorado peach season might start a little later than last years date of July 23rd. The owners of the Orchard (Charlie and Skip) were here visiting our store in April and meeting with us about the upcoming season. They have placed temperature monitor stations through out the orchards that will send alerts to them if the temperatures get too low for the trees and will also monitor the weather conditions and they can respond quickly. Here are some images of the Peach Blossoms this spring....
Our "Mountain Gold" Colorado Peaches are done for the season. Mark it down The season started on Monday July 23rd- Sand the last day was Monday Sept. 24th 2018 for the Colorado Peach Season at BoB's. We had a great season this year. The quality and quantity of the peaches was improved over 2017 season. This years season was 64 days long, compared to 56 days long for 2017. We also had great supplies of peaches. They were available throughout the season with no gaps, as compared to last year which had a couple of supply gaps in availability. Overall it was a Peach Great Season. On behalf of all of us at BoB's Produce Ranch, we THANK YOU for your support this Peach Season.
The owners of the orchard were in our store in July and they indicated that they have just one night of cold temperatures that caused just a little damage. But overall the trees and crop looks good. The area has been dry, however they have water from the Colorado River that can be used during dry periods. Most other orchards in the area don't have that available to them.

Talbott's Mountain Gold Colorado Peaches
Why Colorado Peaches?
Colorado Peaches are grown in the perfect climate. The hot days are contrasted with cool nights which brings out the maximum sweetness in a peach. We have found through the years that the Colorado peaches simply taste the best…
Why “Mountain Gold“?
We have found that Talbott’s “Mountain Gold” Colorado peaches have consistently had the best quality of all of the Colorado peaches. The difference is in how the peaches are handled during the picking , grading, packing and shipping process. Talbott’s has very stringent quality and grading standards which produces the best quality boxes of peaches on a consistent basis.
Just as the peaches need the proper handling during the growing and pack-ing process, they also need to be handled properly at the store to ensure that they will “Finish” properly to be sweet and juicy, (not dry and mushy) We take extra care to monitor every box closely from the time we receive it until you take it home!
