Local Freestone Peaches at Easy-Way: Delicious!



Peaches have been disappointing to me the past few summers, so I hesitated in front of this display at Easy-Way Produce on Mt. Moriah. Then I noticed the sign on the display (Flippen Fruit Farms, Troy, TN), and the steady stream of customers bagging up the golden beauties. So I jumped in, taking six peaches home. After a day in my fruit bowl, the peaches were perfect. They were so juicy and flavorful that I ate two in a row, standing over my kitchen sink.

 

Several days later, I was back for more, along with many other customers. “We sell 30 to 40 cases a day,” said assistant manager Candace Pickard. “I don't like peaches, but most people do.” No kidding. At 25 pounds per case, Easy-Way is selling between 750 to 1,000 pounds of peaches every day.

 

Last week, the peaches from the same farm renowned for its Flippen fruit pies were priced at $1.29 a pound, which makes the  fruit both delicious and affordable enough for canning.
