The long wait is over! The Peach Truck is back with delicious Georgia peaches! As you plan your holiday weekend menu, you might want to add peaches to the shopping list.
Nashville couple, Steven and Jessica Rose, have made selling peaches their full-time business. The Peach Truck has even been mentioned in Food &Wine, The Huffington Post, Southern Living and more. They are taking selling peaches on the side of the road to selling them to restaurants and they’re even doing a peach tour this summer. Not to worry they will still be selling in our area but now with more options than before.
Peach Truck posted on their Facebook about the latest variety of peaches available.
“If you picked up a bag of peaches this weekend, the time has come. Bite in! If you remember that delightful December at the end of last year, it was warm. Here we are in May of 2016, and that warm December means our Carored variety isn’t softening like normal. It still tastes amazing. It’s still juicy. It just has a different texture than our other varieties.”
Pearson Farms has 40 variety of peaches and will be offering different varieties throughout the 13 week growing season.

And if you need a great recipe for this weekend,check out this easy Peach Cobbler recipe The Peach Truck shared.
1 stick butter | 1 cup self-rising flour | 1 cup sugar | 1 cup milk | 1 teaspoon vanilla | 4 cups of Fresh Georgia Peaches
Melt stick of butter in Pyrex dish in the oven. Mix flour, sugar, milk, and vanilla and pour over melted butter. DO NOT STIR. Spoon peaches over mixture. DO NOT STIR. Cook at 350 degrees until brown and bubbly, about 40 minutes. Serves about six.
One little trick. My mom likes to take half of the sugar and stir it in with the peaches. For me, as long as there’s a cobbler in front of me, you’ll hear no complaints.
