Fresh Grilled New Jersey Peach and Tomato Salsa
Jersey Peaches - Jersey peaches are extremely tasty and succulent and sought after because they can be left to ripen on the tree longer than those farmed in other areas of the country. As with other Jersey grown crops, many of these peach farms have pick your own crops and roadside stands that bring just picked, fresh peaches directly to the consumer. New Jersey ranks 4th in the U.S. in the production of peaches. Harvesting is done by hand, usually starting in mid July for early cultivars, and continuing through September for late cultivars.
