Colder weather means good news for Fredericksburg peach crop

Freezing temperatures in Texas are helping businesses in Fredericksburg bear fruit. Last year, peach growers ran into some bad luck when the crop didn't get into the right temperature range until it was too late.

In order for peaches to grow, the fruit needs to spend hundreds of hours within a temperature range of about 35 - 45 o F (2 to 7o C) during a certain time period. Last year, this just didn’t materialize.

News4sanantonio.com notices how this year, Mother Nature has been a little kinder to the Fredericksburg growers. So far, some 450 hours within the right temperature ranges have been logged.
