BLACKBERRY CLASS
Prefers deep soil.  Deep rooted plant. Generally prefers a cool, humid region where it can be planted in full sunlight. Blackberries will produce in warmer climates than most raspberries. Plant 2-4 ft. apart in rows 6-9 ft. apart.

BLACK SATIN (Thornless) Medium to large. Black. Honey sweet flavor. Vigorous grower, excellent for home gardens. Heavy yielding semi-erect thornless type with improved quality and hardiness, rarely suckers, very disease resistant. Hardy to about -15 degrees F
( Zone 5b). Ripens: July.

NAVAHO (Thornless)  The first fully erect, self supporting thornless blackberry.  Superior medium sized fruit - more sweet and less tart than other thornless varieties.  Ripens June to July.

BOYSENBERRY CLASS
Most adaptable to climates and soils, most productive per square foot of garden space, and most variable in use within the Blackberry family. Plant 2-4 ft. apart in rows 6-9 ft. apart.

BOYSENBERRY (Thornless)
Medium, reddish-black berry. Not as tart as blackberries.  Good for mild winter areas. Popular with home owners because it is thornless. Hardy to Zone 7. Needs winter protection below 10 degrees F. Ripens: June.


RASPBERRIES
Grows best in areas having a slowly warming, lingering spring.  Plant 2-4 ft. apart in 6-8 ft. rows in well drained soils.  Ripening: Spring/Summer-bearing cultivars produce canes that are biennial in habit, growing one year and producing the next.  Everbearing (fall-bearing) cultivars produce canes that bear fruit on the top portion of the current seasonís growth in late summer and fall (usually late August to early October). If you leave these canes for next year, they will bear fruit on the portions that did not fruit the previous fall. Therefore this type can produce fruit in both June-July on the base of last yearís cane and late summer/early fall on top of current seasonís cane. The earlier crop is usually small. 

CANBY RED (Nearly Thornless)  Large berries. Firm, sweet and excellent fresh or for freezing. Vigorous canes.  Nearly thornless at harvest heights. High level of virus and aphid immunity. Very hardy. Likes cooler summers.
 Harvest June, July.

BABA RED   Everbearing Red Raspberry - Extra large berries up to 1 1/2" long. Wonderful warm weather variety particularly well suited to southern California's coastal and inland valleys. Fine flavor and good for all uses. Bears heavy crop May-July with a smaller late summer crop through fall. Hardy to zero degrees. Self-fruitful.

HERITAGE RED  Everbearing. Large and firm, excellent quality. Moderate early July crop and and heavy production in early September. Good vigor and hardy canes that need no staking. #1 variety nationwide.

STRAWBERRIES
Will grow on a wide range of soil types if well drained. Must be in an area where winter soil temperature averages under 55į F.  Should be grown where there is adequate sunshine. Should be set 6-10" apart in single rows or 10-14" apart in double rows.  Contains a great amount of Vitamin C.

ALBION (Everbearing)   Large to very large firm sweet berries.  High yielding with robust runners.  Resistant to verticillium wilt and phytophthera crown rot.  Production kicks in as Chandler is finished and goes through the summer.

CHANDLER  Very large. Medium red, glossy, attractive finish. Long conical to long wedge shaped. High yielding. Excellent quality fruit, much firmer than Douglas. Excellent coastal variety or anywhere. Adapted to winter and summer plantings. Heavy spring harvest.
