However, I am here to tell you that unless someone is lying to me (and I REALLY don't think they are), there is a local farmer who has his own peaches, and they are fantastic. Sturges Orchards. We have been getting these all summer. They are $7.00 for a quart (about 5-6 big peaches), and they are absolutely, consistently delightful. I've never had anything but a juicy, sweet peach, and not one even slightly mealy, ever. We have been buying their peaches at the Pittsburgh Public Market in the Strip District on Saturday mornings

We have also bought a lot of other terrific produce from them including Zestar apples (a hybrid variety similar to Honey Crisp), apple cider, berries, and more.
Personally, I like my fruit as close to plain as possible. Over the summer I have been really enjoying peaches for breakfast with my yogurt. Or, in this case, Brownie Batter Pancakes with peaches, blueberries, and hemp seeds in addition to the yogurt.
