Peach season looking pretty peachy in SC | capitalpress.com

It may be a little later than normal because of the cool, wet spring, but this year’s peach season in South Carolina is looking pretty peachy.

A few late freezes caused some of the earliest peaches blooming in the state to die, but overall, farmers said the crop is good as peach farmers start picking and packing.

The state’s most southern major peach operation, Chappell Farms in Barnwell County, opened its packing shed and started harvesting about a week ago, which is about two to three weeks behind the average season, co-owner Tommy Chappell said.
