Home of the Big Peach

I was there last month and the Big Peach is really showing some age; so is the monument next too it. I never noticed the dent in the monument. but next time I'm down there I'll see if I can find out what happened to it.

They do have a big selection of items and some of the best apple butter that $6 bucks can buy.

We happened upon the Big Peach while driving on US41, and it really beckons you to come into the produce market that is just behind it. It's still in great condition, as is the delicious produce.

We note that the Big Peach keeps company with an attractive, dented obelisk.

The Big Peach

The Big Peach is a marvel of architectural ingenuity. In the summer, there is a produce stand on the premises that sells, of course, peaches. They also vend other items. When I was there I admired a selection of Lamb Chop memorabilia. The peach is easily accessible and you can walk right up to it. There is a smaller statue next to it that resembles the Washington Monument. Someone must take pride in the peach; she always seem to gleam with a nice paint job.

The Big Peach

The giant peach on US 41 is about 5 miles north of town on the west side of US 41. As of 1996, it was a family-owned produce stand. The giant (probably 20 ft diameter or so) peach shares a pedestal with a large golden obelisk (or a small Washington Monument, depending on how you want to look at it).
