Georgia is on track to have one of its best and sweetest peach crops in a decade, experts say. The harvest is well under way. Weather conditions have been good. Peach growers should be happy with what they're seeing, says Kathy Taylor, a horticulturist with the University of Georgia Extension Service. During early harvest, trees generally produce around 75 pounds of peaches per free. Later-harvested tiles could produce as much as 300 pounds per tile, she says. Georgia farmers grow about 15,000 acres of peaches. The cool winters help tees, too. Peach trees need a certain number of chill hours, a hours below 45 Fahrenheit, to perform well in spring and summer.
