Peach Grading Chart

Did you know Japanese peaches can be graded according to four levels defined by the fruit’s appearance and their level of sweetness? Fruit sweetness can be measured in Brix. Higher Brix means sweeter fruit. Each variety of peaches will also have its own grading chart. Let’s take Okayama’s as an example:

  • Royal – at the top of the pyramid, Royal-grade peaches have Brix 12 or more with an excellent, flawless appearance. This is the kind of peaches you can find at city'super.
  • King – second from the top of the pyramid, King-grade peaches have Brix 11.5 or more with a fine appearance.
  • Ace – third from the top of the pyramid, Ace-grade peaches have Brix 10.5 or more with a good appearance.
  • For Processing – the bottom of the pyramid define peaches that are not as highly graded and will be used for making into processed foods.
