Peach/Nectarine season in Maryland?

I have had the absolute worst luck with peaches this year. A few weeks ago I decided to officially give up on an edible peach, but of course still have memory lapses and buy a couple only to find that they are mushy inside. Any ideas when peach season ends in Maryland? Is the season the same for nectarines? I have found that it's often easier to find a suitable nectarine than peach. Thanks.

      So I should save myself the money and perhaps consider the transition to fall fruits?

        The ones I've gotten at the farmers markets the past couple of weeks have been just ok, but that's still way better than the non-local cottony/mealy/rotten/rockhard peaches and nectarines you can get the rest of the year, so I keep buying them as long as the local farmers have them. But in any event, that won't be for much longer.

        Same for tomatoes, of course!

          Blargh, OK. I imagine that relying on shipped in stock at the grocery store would not be much better
