AAC EDEN RED RASPBERRY
Tested as K06-2, this variety was released by Andrews Jamieson at Kentville, Nova Scotia. A cross between ‘Glen Ample x ‘K93-11’, the strong canes are spineless and shown to be moderately winter hardy. The conical fruit are large, firm, light to medium in color with exceptional flavor. Early results show this to be a great mid-season choice to trial when looking for a variety with high productivity and flavor.
DOUBLE GOLD RASPBERRY
This is a recent release by Dr. Courtney Weber from Cornell University. The deep blush, golden champagne color berries are medium in size and have a conic shape. They are considered to have an excellent, sweet fl avor. The plant grows vigorously, suckers freely, and shows tolerance to diseases. Double Gold can be grown as both a fl oricane (summer) and primocane (fall) producer. This plant is more suited for Pick-your-own, and local commercial sales. Double Gold adds an alternative yellow variety to our program!
This thornless blackberry variety has excellent quality fruit, with fi rm, sweet, attractive berries. Fruit ripens before Navaho. Plant has very erect canes, and intermediate vigor. Winter Hardiness appears to be less than Navaho, similar to Apache. Plants appear resistant to anthracnose, and double blossom/ rosette. Orange rust has not been reported on any plants. We highly recommend it for the Mid-Atlantic, West Coast and Southern states based on excellent grower results.
