2017 SC peaches – better come July

June 20, 2017 (Windy Hill Beach, SC) — The top story in today’s The Greenville News is titled “SC peaches in short supply; Early warmth, mid-March freeze mean fewer peaches found in state”. The article actually contains some good news: although the state’s early season peach crop is about 50% of normal, the July-early Sept late-season crop is expected to be nearly normal, according to Clemson Pomology professor Carlos Melgar. The last time we had relatively warm winter with late frost was 2007, when almost all of both early and late peach crop was lost.
