FAQ

General

Why are The Peach Truck peaches so much better than grocery store peaches? +

The Peach Truck peaches surpass grocery store peaches because they are just hours off the tree when you eat them. Additionally, they’re picked when they’re ripe, and not a second before. Grocery store peaches can spend many, many days in distribution before making it to their final location, which is why their flavor and texture is so inconsistent.

What makes your Georgia peaches better than South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, or California peaches? +

When you think Georgia, you think peaches and vice versa. This is not a mistake. These other states may grow more peaches, but Georgia is where you will always get the best peach. Quality over quantity. The heat of the summer cooks the peach day and night ensuring the juiciest peach possible, the red Georgia clay helps retain water and nutrients that allow the tree to create the perfect peach, and they’re picked when they’re ready to be picked, not a second before.

Are your peaches Freestone peaches? +

Freestone peaches are typically picked in late June. The first peaches of the season are Clingstone peaches, meaning the flesh of the fruit clings fully to the pit. In early June we transition to Semi-Clings peaches, meaning the flesh of the peach comes mostly off the pit. Finally in late June the Freestone peaches arrive, this is when the flesh of the peach comes completely off the pit. Perfect for canning or freezing.

What variety of peaches do you grow? +

We harvest over 40 varieties of peaches from our first pick of the year, Flavorich, to the variety that made The Peach State famous, Elberta. We sell whatever variety was picked that day and is ready to be consumed. What variety is the best? The one that’s in your hand! A fresh peach is always the best peach!

Are your peaches Non-GMO or Organic? +

Our peaches are minimally treated. That means that treating the crop is always a last resort, never our first option. The farm does reserve the right, however, to protect the crop should it become vulnerable. The farm is GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certified and it was the first peach farm in Georgia to receive that certification. That means that we have been recognized for not just the care of our wonderful fruit but also the care of the land and creating sustainable farming practices. Our peaches are, indeed, non-GMO.

Where are your peaches grown? +

Our peaches are grown in Ft. Valley, Georgia, the heart of Peach County.
