SPARTANBURG, SC (AP) – Peach farmers in South Carolina’s Upstate region say they are having a good season despite some damage caused by cold weather.

Farmers tell that the peaches are sweeter this year. Clemson Extension Agent Andy Rollins says demand for peaches across the Upstate remains strong.

The region is just past the peak of the season. Rollins says early blooms mean the season is ending earlier than normal, but there are still plenty of good peaches left.
