Peach abundance

The Hill Country peach season is in full bloom, and for the first time in years, even growers are licking their lips with anticipation.  “It's the best crop we've had since at least 2004,” said Jamey Vogel, co-owner of Vogel Orchard near Stonewall. “I don't think the crop could be any better than it is.”

Some Hill Country growers have been picking peaches and other fruit for weeks, filling roadside stands with peaches considered among the tastiest in the state. The heaviest selling season runs through July, but late-ripening varieties could keep peaches in stands through September, growers said.

Last year and in 2006, late freezes and other weather extremes knocked out almost all the area's peaches. The two intervening years saw improvement but fell well short of full production.
