The Fredericksburg-Stonewall area has become known as the Peach Capital of Texas. Benjamin Lester Enderle, Gillespie County Surveyor and a math and science teacher at Fredericksburg High School, is known as the Father of the Hill Country Peach Industry when he planted five peach trees and began selling the fruit in 1921. Enderle worked to develop several varieties of peaches, including the Hale, Burbank, Elberta, and Stark varieties. He eventually had 5,000 producing peach trees on 150 acres. Growers claim the phenomenal taste is due to the area having the right combination of elevation, sandy soil, and climate to produce flavorful clingstone and freestone peaches. The fruit ripens from May through August, and consumers can either buy picked fruit, or pick their own from dozens of local farms and fruit stand through the Spring and Summer months.
