TULLAHOMA — Just in time for summer … it’s time to get your Georgia peaches. The Peach Truck will make its annual June trek into southern, middle Tennessee the third week of June … and this year due to social distancing guidelines, locals will need to pre-order.

Each year the truck delivers the first peaches of summer, Clingstone peaches, to our area just a few hours after they’ve been picked from all the way in Fort Valley, Georgia. That red Georgia clay and abundance of sunshine creates sweet, juicy peaches that surpass any you’ll find on local grocery shelves.

On Wednesday, June 17 The Peach Truck will roll through Northgate Mall beginning at 2:30 p.m. Peaches are sold by the 25 pound box for $43. All peaches must be pre-ordered at The Peach Truck website this year. They will not have items for walk-up purchase.
