Peachy Huntington

July 25, 2012

A new producer came into the Wild Ramp today with garlic to sell and mentioned she also had access to peaches. Since so much of the peach crop got nipped by frost during the bloom early in the spring. this was great news.

Since she indicated that the source was a house in Huntington, I was able to check it out easily. Planted over  30 years ago, the trees occupy the front yard of a house on 7th Avenue near Marshall University.  The owner feeds the trees with fertilizer spikes in the spring but the tree is not sprayed for any pests. 

The fruit may have blemishes but they are sweet, cling peaches. Come soon, because there are not much and they will sell quickly.
