Tommy Chappell, a partner with Chappell Farms Inc., Barnwell, S.C., said dry weather has helped the peach crop.

“We’ve got a good, clean early crop, and it’s been dry, so the sugar content should be excellent,” he said.

Warm weather will have melons ahead of schedule, but growers are trying to keep them in their harvest window of early June, according to Eubanks.
