Check the color. The yellow parts of ripe peaches should be golden and vibrant in color rather than pale. Pay close attention to the yellow (and less so to the red) as this will indicate a ripe peach! Make sure there isn’t any green color on the flesh as that would indicate that the peaches are not ripe enough.
Use your nose. Ripe peaches will often have a light, sweet peach smell even before cutting into them! If they smell overly fragrant this could be a sign that the peach is too ripe.
Give a gentle squeeze. Just like choosing an avocado, you’ll want to gently press down on the flesh to test the ripeness and juiciness. Because we’ll be halving and grilling the peaches rather than eating them whole, be sure there’s some give but that the peaches do not bruise to the touch — meaning they’re likely too soft.
