Jim Beam = Kentucky dood. I concur on the peaches = GA or SC. Nothing like some beautiful Georgia peaches.

They were probably imported from GA.

Could have been but Chattanooga is not known for great peaches due to the cooler climate.

What is it with us and PA today?

Peaches can grow lots of places but the GA and SC peaches are different from the northern ones and can only grow where it stay warm most of the year. Just like you don't see many orange tress in NYC either.

I totally agree about oranges (and grapefruit). Never seen any here. Maybe peaches are more like grapes and pears, which we also have, and are delicious.

These peaches in Pennsylvania were memorable. Absolutely delicious.

That's what I thought about grapes too.....New York?..... until a friend in Troy (across the river) gave me some she grew in her backyard.....

It's really special when you travel a lot as a kid, and remember a trip for the peaches.

I'm sure Georgia has very nice peaches too.

Try some Finger Lakes wines and you'll see how special NYS grapes can be...

I was telling a coworker today about the mangos in mexico - unbelievably good. One of the most vivid memories from my trip.

Re: My introduction

Hey a$$holes, thanks for hijacking my introduction into a discussion of the merits of New York wines and Georgia peaches!

Nah, just kidding.... I readily admit I'm enjoying it.....


P.S. Moroccan clementines rule! (As do both kinds of Georgia peach......)

Re: My introduction

Alabamans' tax dollars at work:
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/24/national/24peach.html

Quote:
Alabama legislators have some fences to mend with neighboring Georgia after state representatives passed a resolution Tuesday naming peaches Alabama's official tree fruit.
..
"If you've ever tasted Alabama peaches, you'd throw rocks at Georgia,"
...
"I didn't realize Alabama had any peaches at all," said Thomas T. Irvin, Georgia's agricultural commissioner since 1969.
...
Alabama already has an official state fruit, the blackberry, adopted in 2004. Adding a tree fruit to the list, much less horning in on one indisputably linked to Georgia, just seemed greedy to some.
(with apologies to cool dood)
