I recommend eating air fryer peaches right away. You can store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat in the air fryer, however I find it tastes the best when it is fresh.
The key is to gently remove the pit of the peach to create two even halves. If your peach is not ripe enough, you'll find it more difficult to cleanly remove the pit.
To get the crumble topping to stay on top of your peaches gently press it down using a spoon or clean fingers.
