We want to pick at the peak of perfection, and a lot of people don’t understand that. But once they eat the peach, they realize that the flavor is so much better because you’re picking that fruit when it’s ripe on the tree.”
Glen Ikeda, co-owner of Ikeda’s fruit stand, specialty grocery store, and burger shack in Auburn
