Franciscan monks introduced the peach to the town of St.Simons and the Cumberland Islands (Georgia coast) in 1571. In the mid-18th century, peaches and plums were grown by local native Cherokee Indians for their own consumption.
Before the Civil War, the number of farms growing this type of fruit multiplied, but it was not until the mid-19th century that its commercial production took off, transporting large quantities by ship to nearby coastal markets such as New York.
Events such as the abolition of slavery led farmers to rethink their crops, substituting large cotton fields for intensive crops on fewer hectares.
In 2003 Georgia was the third state in peach production, behind California and South Carolina, with plantations covering 6,070 hectares.
The climatic and geographical conditions are ideal for planting this type of fruit.
