Peach Update, April 20, 2012

The culling has been completed, and Case D. Fischer, CEO & President of Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods, Inc., inspects those peaches left on the trees, as well as the ones that were culled.

When there are 2 growing very close together, we get rid of the smallest, and keep the larger peach. Some branches have many more than the tree can reasonably support, so the excess are discarded.

This leaves quite a few small peachlets on the ground, but it makes for a much better overall crop! “We’re looking at a bumper crop, we hope! The best we’ve had in years!” Case explained.

So we’ll keep you posted on the progress of the crop!
