SC peach crop smaller, sweeter

Jul 19, 2010 6:51:00 AM - thestate.com
South Carolina peach growers say this year's harvest has smaller, but sweeter fruit.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported Monday that growers say the mild winter produced a large crop.

Some varieties of peaches are smaller than usual because of a lack of rainfall, but experts say the smaller the peach, the higher the sugar concentration.

Clemson extension agent Andy Rollins says people are getting more peaches in each bushel.

Growers say this year's crop is the biggest the region has had in the several years.
