A recent trip to Dallas revealed the sad truth: Summer fruit season, so good while it lasts, has come to an end. The roadside stands in north Texas selling Fairfield peaches, the latest-ripening of the Texas peaches, have all closed up and moved on.

The lack of peaches on Interstate-45 is the surest sign we’re in the fresh fruit doldrums that lull when summer crops like peaches and strawberries have run their course, and fall fruits such as apples and pears are still, like the first cold front, tantalizingly off in the future.
