Clemson University hosting Peach Field Day

Jul 21, 2011 4:04:00 AM - thestate.com
Peach and nectarine growers from South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina are meeting at Clemson University to sample dozens of peaches.

Clemson peach specialist Desmond Layne says he's hoping to taste as many as 40 different varieties at Thursday's field day.

Layne says the event is intended to help growers see the variety in peach types that can be grown in South Carolina. The different kinds of peaches up for tasting were developed and tested for reliability of size, shape, sugar content and firmness.

Layne says South Carolina's $60 million-a-year peach industry employs more than 1,000 people.
