Appledore Woods Berry Farm grows one variety of summer raspberries: Nova. We have also added Fall raspberries - Autumn Britton and Autumn Bliss - additional planting will be done in the spring of 2011.
U-Pick summer raspberries are available for about 3-4 weeks starting mid July. Fall raspberries are typically available mid to late August.
Rasberries have been cultivated in Europe for over 400 years. In North America, cultivated raspberries originated from two groups: red raspberries, native to Europe, and wild red ones native to North America. By 1867 over 40 different varieties were known.
