An analysis was conducted using time-series data to identify possible structural change in the farm-gate demand for South Atlantic fresh peaches [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch.].

Thus, measures such as promotion and advertising, uniform quality control, and cultivar development may increase the demand for South Atlantic fresh peaches.
