How do I ship peaches?
I shipped the peaches overnight (their overnight is always two days, either with the PO or UPS), which is as expensive as it gets. I used cold packs in a styrofoam cooler with the peaches bubble wrapped between the layers.
Before placing the fruits in the crate or box, wrap each one individually in brown packaging paper or tissue paper. The more padding you use in the box, the more likely it is that your fruits will arrive whole and fresh at their destination.
