We have a few Red Haven peaches left then it's onto mid summer peach varieties. These yellow and white freestone peaches are the gems of the summer. We will be starting to harvest Gene Elberta, Suncrest, and Delight yellow peaches. We are harvesting Nectar, Silver Logan and Sugar Lady white peaches.
Our peaches are delicious, yet they lack the blemish free look of those you see in the store. It is the dilemma of not spraying for diseases and pests. Our fruit is also on the small side due to our dependence on nutrition in the soil and not added chemical fertilizers which would stimulate growth. Our crops escaped hail, frost, and intense wind damage so we have a good crop and are able to sustain our goal of donating fresh produce to the food bank twice a week. Thank you to all our customers for being part of a bigger picture.
