US (GA): Light peach crop likely in May

With growers still assessing the damage from a freeze earlier this month, it's likely that early volumes of Georgia peaches will be light in May.

“The crop in Georgia this year will be an interesting one,” said Will McGehee, director of marketing for the Georgia Peach Council. A freeze earlier this month has contributed to the unpredictable nature of this year's season. Because it often takes peaches a while to show whether they will make it through low temperatures, McGehee said growers are still assessing the damage from the freeze that hit the state 10 days ago. As far as volume of fruit, there are still some unknowns about this year's crop.

“There are going to be plentiful Georgia peaches in July and the first part of August,” said McGehee. “At this time, the crop in May looks to be light and the crop in June is still being assessed.” He added that prices at the beginning of the season are expected to be higher than normal, with demand at an all-time high.
