I can honestly say the peach I picked up last week at the Mid-City Green Market was the most delicious example of this fruit.
Perfectly ripe, the first bite just gushed with this juice. It was red and stained the napkin I was using like drops of cabernet. It wasn't even too sweet, but rather a deep, juicy, tart sangria flavor. Even the yellow meat of the fruit down by pit was slurp-able.
I don't know what they're doing in Georgia, but I really can't imagine a better peach than the one I ate last week.
The Mid-City Green Market is held each Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the American Can apartments, 3700 Orleans Ave.
