The first batch of winter fruit from Chile is offloaded yesterday at the Tioga Fruit Terminal on Delaware Avenue. The freighter Choapa, the first of about 120 ships scheduled to arrive this winter on the Delaware River, docked with 360,000 boxes of peaches, grapes, plums, nectarines and apricots. Delaware River ports receive about 70 percent of the winter fruit; the rest goes to Los Angeles.

Out in the orchards, Steven Sokoloff of Ardmore reached up and plucked a large, ripe peach from a tree. "I had a peach tree as a kid," said Sokoloff, 40, as he put the fruit into a half-full cardboard box. "I'm coming back here to remember what it was like. " Sokoloff was one of hundreds of peach lovers who gathered at Linvilla Orchards in Middletown on Sunday for the annual peach festival and to pick their own fruit. Visitors of all ages piled into wagons for a hayride out to the orchards, where the fruit was plentiful.

Alfred S. Caltabiano Sr., 81, a Gloucester County peach grower who started farming during the Depression, died Friday at Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center in Camden. Born in the Catania province of Sicily, Mr. Caltabiano came to the United States with his family when he was just 3 years old; they settled in Philadelphia. As a young man, Mr. Caltabiano traveled from Philadelphia to South Jersey farms each summer to work cutting asparagus and picking tomatoes. In 1939 he purchased his 106-acre farm in Mullica Hill.

August is drawing to a close and, already, the temperatures have dipped into the 50s once or twice at night, with a forecast for more of the same. Twilight is arriving earlier now to erase the long summer evenings, minute by subtle minute. Shop windows are showing wool. A few red leaves have intruded among the summer foliage on suburban lawns. And today, weather permitting, comes another undeniable harbinger of autumn: From 9 a.m. until noon, Linvilla Orchards' hay wagon will trundle pickers out into the peach fields for the season's final pick-it-yourself day. Next crop: pumpkins.

Peach pizza, peach pancakes, a Little Miss Peach contest and two peach runs are some of the features at the fourth annual Camden County Regional Peach Festival Saturday and next Sunday in Pennsauken. "Anything to do with peaches, we're going to do it," said Linda Butenis- Vorsa, festival treasurer. "Not a lot of people know New Jersey grows peaches," she said. In fact, New Jersey produced more peaches last year than Georgia, and is third in the nation in peach production. Camden County is the fourth largest peach producer in the state, with 2,500 of New Jersey's 14,000 peach-devoted acres, she said.

Anyone who joins one of those partnerships that invest in movies knows that there is a great deal of risk involved. For the hardy Irish souls who put up the money for Eat the Peach, there was also clear and present danger. The comedy, written by John Kelleher and Peter Ormrod and directed by the latter, was made on a set where a shoestring counted as a luxury. One way to save money was to round up visiting investors and invite them to play extras in their own movie. Since the enterprise that engages the film's two heroes is the building of a ramshackle wall-of-death in which they gun their motorcycles, the assignment turned out to be a little tougher than a normal day at the races.

Until two years ago, every peach that Santo Maccherone couldn't send to market cut into his profit margin. There was nothing wrong with the peaches - in fact, they were probably the best-tasting ones because they were perfectly ripe. But that also meant they couldn't be shipped without suffering bruises or turning overripe. "I was throwing out at least 10 percent, sometimes more, of the crop each year," said Maccherone, a third-generation farmer who owns Circle M Fruit Farms in Mullica Hill.

There seems to be some confusion about the exact identity of nectarines. Is they is or is they ain't a peach? Most cooking and gardening books agree with the Oxford English Dictionary, which defines them as "a variety of the common peach. " But Howard Hillman, in The Cook's Book, finds it most likely that "the peach and the nectarine did not spring one from the other but are both descendants of a common, now extinct, ancestor. " Botanically correct or not, the original name, "nectarine peach," is somewhat odd from the gastronomic point of view.

We in the Philadelphia area are smack in the middle of peach country - as New Jersey is the fourth-largest peach-growing state, followed directly by Pennsylvania. And, at the moment, local peaches are at the height of their season and flavor, with the fruit making its annual sweet, lush showing at farmers' markets and groceries around the region. Despite the hard freezes in April, the regional peach crop of 2016 has been described as average - which is far better than growers in winter-ravaged New England can say. With supplies of fresh peaches expected to be steady well into September - and prices reasonable - restaurants are adding them everywhere.

Peach ice cream - fresh-dipped and fabulous - will be featured at the 2016 Gloucester County 4-H Fair this year. But there won't be a Peach Bake-Off, or a Little Miss Peach competition. And a 2016 Peach Queen will not be crowned, either. The all-volunteer New Jersey Peach Festival, a popular component of the fair for decades, has called it quits in the wake of a spring freeze that appears to have destroyed 25 percent of the fruit. Growers and promoters of one of South Jersey's most beloved crops insist that a solid supply of luscious peaches is ripening as we speak.
