I’m going to plant some raspberries!

Actually, I’m planting a LOT of raspberries

As well as blackberries, as part of our Raspberry and Blackberry Research project!

The project will research raspberry varieties for production in Western Colorado. We will research nine promising cultivars and try to identify two or three promising varieties for further research. Varieties will include summer fruiting and ever-bearing types, plus two blackberries for comparison. Yield, harvest season, size and harvest time from each type will be recorded over a three year period, as well as notes on flavor, habitat, storage & processing all posted on a regularly updated website.
