Green Bluff Growers Begin Peach Harvest

FRIDAY, AUG. 4, 1995

Green Bluff orchards north of Spokane have begun to harvest early peaches, orchardist Mark Morrell said Thursday.

The U-pick fruit, which will sell for 45 cents to 50 cents a pound, depending on the grower, is unusually large thanks to timely rains in June, Morrell said.

About eight Green Bluff orchards, located 15 miles north of downtown, offer early peaches, said Morrell, owner of Walter’s Fruit Ranch. , DataTimes
