University of Florida’s St. Johns County Extension Center is experimenting with what could be our newest fruit crop – peaches! My childhood memories of going to visit my great-aunt and uncle in SC and picking peaches in the orchard are some of my favorite memories. And the flavor of those peaches have never been matched by any others until this past week when I had the opportunity to try one of our locally grown peaches! One bite and I was immediately taken back to my childhood and those fabulous peaches! I should stop with my ranting but these peaches were unbelievable! I hope to be able to buy a peach tree and get it planted in my yard so I can have my own crop. Who would have thought we could grow peaches here in Florida?
