Everything's Peachy in Georgia Right Now
In Georgia it’s now officially peach season, which runs until mid-August. This fluorescent orange-bordered sign inside the Lane Southern Orchards market shop in Fort Valley, Georgia, goes into more peach detail than the average stone fruit–eater probably knows. A peach is a peach is a peach, right? Not at this 2,700-acre peach orchard, where the varieties Lane Luck and Cary Mac are peachiest now. Inside the market, the drupe comes in multiple forms: butter, marmalade, salsa, and ice cream at the attached café.
