Texas peach season ending early after mild winter

It’s not July yet, but Texas is down to its last peaches due to a mild winter. The peach season is practically over for Marburger Orchard, which posted last week that it didn’t have enough peaches to sell at the Saturday farmstand. “Whatever few we may have will be sporadic and unpredictable, and we may reserve them for once a week sale at the Thursday Fredericksburg Farmers Market,” the website says.

The Hill Country Fruit Council posted an update a few days ago saying “Freestone peaches are now available at many Hill Country Fruit Council member/grower stands and markets, although in much lesser supply than many years due to a mild winter.”

Vogel Orchard said that they have some Red Globe freestone peaches available this week, but that this “is the last variety for the season with a decent volume. While we cannot guarantee peaches to be available at all times due to the high demand, this will be your best opportunity for the rest of the season…unfortunately, the mid and late season varieties were especially affected by the mild winter and we will have limited quantities for the remainder of the season.”
