University of Georgia

Peaches come in many varieties. Anyone who wants to see the latest and best to grow in the Southeast should go to the Florida-Georgia Twilight Peach Field Day May 22 at 5 p.m.at the University of Georgia Research and Education Center in Attapulgus, Ga.

Participants will learn about low-acid peach types, types with long shelf life, high-sugar types and types with “enhanced” flavor. They’ll get to taste them, too.

The Attapulgus breeding program is a partnership between the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, University of Florida and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.

RSVP for the free supper by calling (229) 386-3355.
