Peach Enchiladas are a Peachy Perfect Way to Celebrate Summer

By  | 


Peaches are a delicious summer treat, and the Texas Hill Country is famous for their varieties. Not just for canning or eating raw—grilled peaches and Peach Enchiladas are also favorites around here. The Vogel family knows this pitted pleasure well, thanks to many years working with the fruit. Original founders of Vogel Orchards in Stonewall, Nelda and late husband George Vogel, passed along managerial duties in 1998 to their son Jamey and his wife Terri. Stonewall is located 13 miles east of Fredericksburg, on the Pedernales River.

According to, the 2019 peach crop is very strong and was not negatively affected by recent storms. Stop by the Vogels’ roadside stand, which opened in 1972, on U.S. 290. It’s open daily during peach season from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The current varieties include Spring Gold, Regal, June Gold, and Carored. They are all clingstone which means the fruit clings to the pit, as opposed to falling off. In addition to peaches, pick up tomatoes, plums, blackberries, watermelons, cantaloupes, various fresh vegetables, as well as homemade cobblers, preserves, jelly, and Peach Butter Chipotle Sauce.
