Texas Peaches

Texas peaches are the juiciest and sweetest I’ve ever tasted. Hardly the largest though and that is a surprise in a state where we begin to assume that simply everything is ‘bigger’. No, Texas peaches are early summer peaches with fuzz and irregularities of shape. They are like those of my childhood before fruits and vegetables all got bigger and more perfect looking and often lost their sweetness.

Why am I writing about Texas peaches in mid-September? That’s what happens when you run across a photo that jogs your memory and you wish you could stop by that roadside stand again for a basket of new peaches.
