Georgia peaches and blueberries are vulnerable during this week’s cold snap, but they’re holding up so far.
That’s according to Charles Hall, who leads the Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association.
Hall says, compared to last year: “I wouldn’t say we’re not as worried. We’re just kind of keeping the prayers going and hoping that it doesn’t get much below freezing.”
Temperatures in the 20s that hit late last winter devastated peaches and blueberries, but Hall says prolonged exposure to the low 30s also could cause damage.
South Georgia orchards might get that cold Wednesday night.
