Raspberry Variety Trials-2004 Report

This is a 2004 report from a NC Specialty Crops Program Project. It is posted for historical reference purposes.

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
