Raspberry Variety Trials


PROJECT LEADER(S):  Rickey Williams


LOCATION:  Moon Creek Farm, Caswell County




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.  






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.




Five varieties of raspberries were planted and mulched.

  1. Prelude
  2. Lauren
  3. Nova
  4. Caroline
  5. Heritage
