Outlook for peaches not good
Still, Ruston and Lincoln Parish have a lot going for them outside of the nationally known sweet fruit. Those interstate and highway peach sellers will find another vegetable or fruit to trade, and life will move forward.
But there will always be a kind of longing for those Ruston peaches. I remember, during my oft-referred-to internship at the Daily Leader back when I was in school at Louisiana Tech, an interview with the brain behind the peach situation.
