The fruit detective reappears [NYT]
April peaches may well continue to improve as breeders make further progress, though they will never match the best summer varieties. Perhaps it is perverse to force peaches to grow at a place and time for which they are not naturally suited, but for centuries farmers have honorably raised out-of-season crops for luxury markets, and the Coachella Desert might arguably be considered a giant natural hothouse.
Real peaches less than a month away. Is it still snowing on the east coast?
