There’s still plenty of summer left and one of the season’s sweetest treats is ready for pickin’. Rutgers University professor emeritus and stone fruit specialist Jerry Frecon said peaches are low in calories, high in fiber, contain no fat and are sodium free. They are also rich in antioxidants such as Vitamins A and C, and provide 333 milligrams of potassium each. "And these highly nutritious and very delicious treats are available right in our backyard," Frecon said. "New Jersey is the fourth largest peach grower in the country. Local peaches come from 92 orchards in 100 different varieties including yellow, white, donut (flat, round) and nectarines."
