Official State Fruit of Georgia

Georgia designated the peach as the official state fruit in 1995 (Georgia also recognizes a state vegetable, a state crop, and an official prepared food). All State Foods

Georgia's nickname is "The Peach State" because of its reputation for producing the highest quality fruit. Georgia-grown peaches are recognized for their superior flavor, texture, appearance and nutritious qualities - a peach is featured on the U.S. Mint's Georgia quarter.



Georgia became the 4th state in 1788. The Georgia quarter features a peach (state fruit and nickname), live oak sprigs (the state tree), an outline of Georgia, and the state motto: "Wisdom Justice Moderation" (public domain image on Wikipedia). All State Quarters
