@shortgrass About 5 years ago I bought some Palisade Peaches at the farmers market for making a fresh peach cobbler. Figured if they were good, I would pick up some the next weekend for canning. I got home and peeled, sliced and then tasted them. Blah, very juicy but absolutely no flavor ... never bought any since. I got lucky and located a local lady who's sister and b-i-l owned a truck and bought cases of apples/peaches/cherries in from Idaho, Utah, Oregon and Washington, wherever they could get good deals from. She sold out of her garage. They had great, farm fresh fruit that was affordable. Oh, and some really good cheese!
