Peach cropper

It’s always hard to tell with the Hill Country Fruit Council’s guide to finding peaches, whether the "closed for season" remarks for some growers are for this year or refer to last year and just haven’t been updated yet. But the April 7 freeze appears to have zapped more than a few of them, including the Marburger Orchard in Fredericksburg. They say "No Peaches" straight out on their site. So I expect we will see a slimmer supply at the H.E.B. than usual this year. Alas.

  1. No peaches makes for a sad summer.

    Oh, there’ll be plenty from elsewhere in the state, as well as imports from Florida and Mexico. We just like to have the Hill Country version when we can.
