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.
