Domestic Peaches?

zackly | Aug 1, 202005:49 AM     18

Here in SW Connecticut we start to get domestic peaches in June from the southern states of Georgia and South Carolina. They are generally excellent. Even if they appear partially unripe, sit them on the counter for a couple of days and you have sweet juicy goodness. Then around August my supermarket switches to California peaches which are terrible, mealy texture, dry and not sweet. What's up with that? Is it because of the harvesting, storage and shipping practices? Do they not travel as well as southern peaches? We do get some local peaches from NJ, NY and CT which are good but generally pricier.
