Raspberry Variety Trials

 

PROJECT LEADER(S):  Rickey Williams

 

LOCATION:  Moon Creek Farm, Caswell County

 

 


IMPACT


The potential of raspberry cultivation will not be recognized until the second year of the trial, although a strong interest is evident in growers within the state. A field day drew 25 people from five different counties.  

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Raspberries are difficult to grow in North Carolina due to high temperatures. The purpose of the project was to look at different varieties, maturity dates and quality of fruit.

 

METHODS

 

Five varieties of raspberries were planted and mulched.
