Come to Guimaras in the Philippines and pick the sweetest mangoes!

My husband picked too, in high school! Love France, glad I never had to pick the fruit though!

Something I've rarely seen used in the US compared to France is the "cagette" holding all the peaches, so definitely France!

Hey, Nick. I think you're fabulous. You do a great job every day for all of us - thank you. For all we know, though... this could be your backyard! Cheers!

We do have delicious peaches in France..but from what I understand we still live on dirt floors right ? Lovely picture and healthy occupation !

Bliss? Y'all don't realize how hard fruit-picking can be.

They probably think "picking peaches in France" is a euphemism like "hiking the Appalachian trail."

But is it France or Georgia USA???

Yes Nicholas you aren't wearing a beret or carrying a baguette so you are obviously lying. Oh brother

Looks an awful lot like an American peach orchard in 1978. Where's proof this is France?

The years roll by in a hurry - you were wise to make that choice.

jcberg 1935 days ago

Great pic, but you must have done more than that - peach season must be 4-6 wks, I'd guess.

Oh!! Those kind of French Peaches!
