That’s the state song, whereas since 1995, the peach has been the state fruit. When first I visited in Georgia many years ago, I noticed that every other thing and his brother has the word “peach” in its name. In the capital city of Atlanta, there are about 70 such streets. There’s a Peach County, south of Macon. Look at the tails side of the Georgia state quarter. A peach. There are reports of parents naming their kids, “Peach.” One of my backpacking partners has the nickname of Peaches . I’m the only one who is allowed to call her that.
