It may be three or four years before you see White Robin peaches at your favorite market, though. Krewer said it takes that long for the new trees to begin bearing fruit in large quantities. Anyone who wants the new trees for commercial or home orchards should order soon. “The Tennessee nurseries that bud and raise the trees don’t have spare trees,” Krewer said. “They bud for the orders they have. So it’s important to order ahead.” Its name sounds like an exotic bird. And “White Robin,” a newly released peach variety, could become a sign of spring in south Georgia, said a University of Georgia scientist. “This new variety is perfect for south Georgia peach orchards,” said Gerard Krewer, an Extension Service horticulturist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.UGA, the University of Florida and the U.S. Department of Agriculture jointly named and released the new variety. It was developed at the Attapulgus Research Farm, near the Florida state line in Georgia.

Krewer said those features make it an ideal variety for south Georgia and north Florida home or commercial orchards.

We often don’t get that many chill hours in south Georgia.” Its firmness is a plus for commercial growers, making White Robin a good shipping peach. Krewer said growers can ship White Robin with little bruising before it gets to mid-Atlantic Coast destinations. Another plus is its early-season ripeness — usually sometime in May. Krewer said this gets Georgia peaches to markets before other white peaches grown farther north. That helps Georgia farmers capture the best prices for their fruit. Tom Beckman, a USDA fruit researcher in Byron, Ga., said White Robin fills a niche in the peach season. “This peach comes in at a time when no other white-fleshed peaches are available,” he said. “It’s really a specialty peach.” Beckman hopes to see growers keep the fruit close to home. Like many other fruits, White Robin is best when tree-ripened. But long shipping distances force growers to pick before the fruit is really ripe. “If growers keep the fruit close, say their local farmers’ market or specialty grocery store, they can leave it on the tree longer,” he said. “That results in riper, and sweeter, peaches.” White Robin peaches were developed mainly for fresh markets. “They’ve got a different flavor than yellow-flesh peaches,” Beckman said. “Krewer and I have tried to describe them, but you just have to taste them to understand.”
By Dialogo January 29, 2013 An urban prison located in northeastern Venezuela was evacuated on January 27, after a fatal prison riot in which 58 people were killed and dozens were injured according to medical sources, the government informed. Venezuelan penitentiaries are known for unsanitary conditions, overcrowding, and violence, and in several cases they are controlled by heavily armed gangs of prisoners that belong to criminal organizations and constantly generate confrontations between inmates. “The evacuation of convicts in Uribana prison has concluded. Now, we aim at reconstruction,” Minister of Penitentiary Affairs Iris Varela, who has not submitted an official statement yet, said in her Twitter account. “Last group of prisoners found during the first inspection in Uribana!” the minister posted in the social network, and uploaded a photo that showed several inmates with military officers. The minister reported the decision of completely evicting Uribana penitentiary, an operation that was finally carried out “peacefully” in the early morning of January 27, and in which inmates did not resist. “All of them are leaving the premises, without resisting. They are leaving in an orderly way, they wait patiently, then we pat them down, we examine them(…) and we determine which prisons they have to go to,” Varela told state television station VTV in the early morning. Furthermore, she indicated that “a deep inspection” will be performed now on the premises before its reconstruction, and so that prisoners can return. On January 25, an inspection aimed at finding weapons in Uribana caused a group of inmates to start a prison riot. The convicts “attacked National Guard members,” according to the minister’s initial statements. There were 58 victims and 90 injured, who have already been discharged from the Antonio María Pineda Central Hospital, informed Ruy Medina, head of the hospital who was in charge of handling the emergency. On January 25, Venezuelan Vice President Nicolás Maduro ordered an investigation of the prison riot, considered one of the most violent episodes in the history of the country’s penitentiaries in recent decades.
