When I think about eating fruit in the summer, I think of the bites that result in juice dripping messily down my chin. It’s all part of the experience, and peaches are prime culprits. Tree-ripened to perfection, the juicy peaches at Green Bluff orchards are primed for picking and available in surplus from numerous growers. The Peach Festival takes over Green Bluff from now until Labor Day. Visitors can pick and choose right off the trees from different varieties of peach, such as Red Haven, Daroga Red and more. If you want the flavor without the sticky chin result of a fresh bite, there’s always assortments of peach cobblers, ice creams and pies to celebrate this fruit’s season.
