The season has begun. The freestone peaches have yet to appear, but the early-season cling peaches leave nothing to complain about. Today’s finds came to Austin from Pittsburg, in Camp County. The most recent finds before that were from Fairfield, in Freestone County. We’re seeing peaches from many easterly locations this year; weather events made difficulties for orchards on parts of the Hill Country, word has it. We’ve seen little stands all over town this week; the one in the picture is in front of the vacant building at West Elizabeth Street and South First, across from Cantu’s and Capitol Cleaners.


Peaches straight from the orchard may be found at South Lamar and Bluebonnet (where Rudolph’s Christmas tree stand sets up, next to the drugstore that’s next to Maria’s Taco Xpress).

Look for the white E-Z UP canopy. The season for cling peaches is almost over; soon the freestone peaches will be here.

These are peaches as they are meant to be.
