Did you know that it’s National Nutrition Month and that canned California Cling Peaches are just as nutritious as fresh? Crazy, right?! According to an Oregon State University study, the canning process actually increases key nutrients and locks in their fresh-picked flavor. Grown on small family farms, these peaches are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness and packed just miles away from the orchard.

You can check out several videos on the California Cling Peach website to learn all about the nutrition packed canned peaches!
