PEACHES (to be continued)

Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 65 Mostly Cloudy; Humid High 89) 

We knew that by staying in Kerrville this summer that we would be able to enjoy some locally grown peaches. What we did not know is that there are 23 varieties that are grown in nearby Fredericksburg. We've already had some but the market didn't know if they were Spring Gold, Regal or Flavorich. Yesterday we went to Das Peach Haus of Fischer and Wieser's Orchard and they had the Regal variety.

They also offered samples of peach cider and one sip convinced us to buy a couple of bottles. Of course we had to get some of their peach preserves. And of course JJ had to inspect what we brought home.

Here is the ripening schedule for peaches.

As you can see we may have many more reports on the peaches in the Hill Country of Texas. Don't know if we will be able but we want to sample some of all the varieties. They do have a high bar as we are big fans of Missouri peaches.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
