Description:
Transcribed from back: No. 4--In the trough at right, the culls are on their way out, workers allowing the marketable peaches to continue on for sorting. North Carolina peaches are grown in a thermal belt on the sandhills, which rarely feels extreme cold. Peach orchards are modern and big business, some of them covering hundreds of acres. The largest is 8 miles long.
