New Jersey, US, expects largest peach crop in years

While other states in the US are seeing poor peach harvests, New Jersey is the exception. The state is one of the largest growers of peaches in the country, and this year’s crop is expected to be the biggest in years.

The New Jersey Peach Promotion Council is estimating it will be between 55 million and 66 million peaches on 5,500 acres.

For a point of comparison, in 2015 New Jersey farmers grew 42.2 million pounds of peaches on 4,700 acres. This crop brought in $27.6 million. The New Jersey season is just beginning to get into full swing, and will run through September.
