Georgia peach growers anticipating a good harvest
"We hope we have no more sub-freezing temperatures," said Irvin Lawson, Owner and Operator of Lawson Peaches. "We don't want to lose 'em like we did last year when it got down to 26 on March the fifth."
Peach growers fell short of their ideal number of 800 chill hours, but the cold winter still provided them with enough for what they expect to be a plentiful harvest.
"We're expecting a good crop...we ended up, February 28th with 752 hours. That makes just about everything we've got," Lawson explained.
Now that the trees have bloomed, the crop is more vulnerable to cold temperatures. But Lawson says based on how the crop handled last week's cold temperatures, he's not worried.
"Last week when we got down to 29 degrees, most everyone of 'em came through okay," Lawson happily pointed out.
As long as the temperatures stay above freezing for the rest of the season, everything will be just peachy.
