California peach orchards south of Yuba City sustained serious damage
from the hailstorm that hit the area last week. It is estimated that up
to 2,000 acres of cling peaches may have been affected by this along
with prune, walnut, and almond acreage. The damage is still being
assessed by field staff and growers with decisions being made about what
can be done with the fruit remaining in these orchards.
