DENVER (AP) -- Frost damage means higher prices and fewer Palisade peaches for customers on the Front Range this year.

According to the Denver Post, it has been the worst weather year for peaches on the Western Slope in more than two decades.

Palisade growers say they are harvesting only 20 to 40 percent of their normal crops. Unusual April freezes killed the rest.
