Have you found any good peaches yet?

I found some at a small market last week and they were delicious. Then I tried the ones at the grocery store and they were hit or miss. So far, I haven't seen any from South Carolina and they are usually really good.

Anybody here from peach country?

1. Nope.

We usually only get hard as rock peaches until later in the month.

6. Yes, I did the other day I got a couple from Publix. Pretty sweet!

I will go to DeKalb Farmer's Market this weekend and they clearly label them: SC, GA, NJ, etc.
Peaches are wonderful!

7. The only way to get peaches that taste like peaches here in NM

is to get the canned ones. The peaches in the store are picked when they're green and rock hard, exposed to ethylene gas to change their color, but they remain rock hard and taste like nothing.

I knew a peach grower back in Mass, specialized in white and heirloom peaches. Now those were wonderful. The big green golf balls here, not so much.

I like those too but the fresh ones can be like candy.

10. Gotta agree - Chilton Co. Peaches are peachy good

Bought a small basket (6 or so) at the local fruit market and they are everything they brag about. The juice and texture was outstanding.

13. Don't know that I've ever seen them from there...

being so close you think I would. But GA is the peach state so there may be some battles about bringing them in. Ha!

9. I'm in North GA and have gotten a bag of very good ones from a fruit stand

and some horrible ones from Kroger. I got a few early ones from Publix and they never got soft. The color was good, but they were rock hard. Our Kroger usually has GA and SC peaches, but I've noticed that some are just labelled "US Produce." Sometimes we can get good ones from Ingles Markets.

14. Lucky!

Local news just had a farmer talking about how much rain is needed right now.

I guess I need to be patient.

15. But now I have just eaten a peach that came from Georgia

via Kroger and it was divine--juicy, sweet, delicious peachy peach.

16. I tried some from Sprouts...

they are from Georgia and pretty small. But it turns out, they are very good. Had some with vanilla ice cream last night and it made me glad to be alive.
