Georgia peaches benefit from drought conditions
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The worst drought in decades is affecting more than half the country, but some are benefiting from the dry conditions.
Peach growers in Georgia say the demand for their produce is very high right now. Their peaches are smaller, but growers say the lack of rain actually makes their fruit sweeter.
For them, the higher wholesale prices and a better tasting fruit are translating into big financial gains.
