Raspberry

Raspberries

Heritage – Red Everbearing: This hardy variety can, as all fall bearing varieties, produce two crops. The first comes in July and the second is the fall crop that starts in September and lasts right up until the first hard freeze. Berries are large, brilliant red, extremely firm and attractive. These berries are superb for freezing and delicious for table use. Because the fall season is usually cooler, the fall crop is larger than the summer crop. And the yield from only one full crop will usually be greater than the combined yield if allowed to double crop. Rated the number one fall bearing variety.

Latham-Red Junebearing: It is quite disease and virus resistant making it a good home garden and small farm choice. The fruit ripens mid-season and has an extended harvest period producing small fruit with good color. This berry is highly recommended for colder climates.

 

GrapesGrapes

Concord-Seedless: Grapes are smaller than regular Concord and will have an occasional seed. The flavor is the same as a regular Concord grape but slightly sweeter. The concord seedless generally ripens 1 week earlier than the seeded Concord and is excellent for pies, jams, jellies, and wine. Once the vine becomes established it shows improved vigor and productivity.

Himrod’White Seedless: The hardiest of the white seedless. It is of the finest quality for eating. Ripens in mid-August in Zone 6. The vines do well in warmer areas of Zone 4, 5 & 8. Hardy to -15.

Mars-Seedless Red: A vigorous blue seedless grape. Clusters are medium-sized and well filled. Vines are reasonably hardy and resistant to several major diseases. Mars is one of the last to bud out in the spring, which helps it avoid the late frost. Vines may bear fruit quite heavily therefore production should be controlled on young vines to prevent delays in establishment. Slipskin.
