Berries & Grapes List:
Plant 2-4' apart in rows that are 6-9' apart. Require deep soil, full sun and ample water through the growing season. Canes will not bear fruit until the following summer when they are two years old. After harvest, the two year old fruiting canes are removed as close to the ground as possible without injuring the new canes. Best if staked after fear of frost in early spring.
Thornless Black Satin
Large, firm, glossy blackberries. Sweet flavor and excellent quality for jams, jellies and fresh eating. Ripens in July. Rarely suckers. Very disease resistant. Thornless type is less productive than the standard varieties. Thornless forms of all blackberries should not be cultivated deeply as damaged feeder roots will send up an occasional sticky sucker that has to be removed.
Triple Crown (Thornless)
The plant is semi-erect, thornless and bears large, flavorful fruit. Early trials indicate that it may ripen on or about August 1st. A good choice to help extend the blackberry season for home gardeners. Thornless forms of all blackberries should not be cultivated deeply as damaged feeder roots will send up an occasional sticky sucker that has to be removed.
Planting distance 3' for hedges, 4-6' when spacing. Require constant light moisture in the soil . Best if planted in partial sun. Soil should be acid and well drained. Do not feed plants the first year. Needs pollinator or two blueberries.

The Logan is often used for pies, juice and wine. There is high demand for it in the home garden due to its desirable flavor. Thornless canes; average yields. Hardiness is similar to Boysenberry.
MUNGER (Black Raspberry)
Set plants 2 1/2' apart in the row, and 6' to 8' between rows. Raspberries benefit from high organic content in soils. Organic matter promotes drainage in heavy soils and increases the moisture holding capacity of sandy soils. Prune out old canes. (Everbearing varieties can be pruned to the ground late in fall.)
An early Autumn fruiting raspberry. Large, oval-conical, medium to dark red berry. This berry has a pleasant mild flavor. Autumn Bliss ripens earlier than Heritage, overlapping in mid-August with the latest summer cropping varieties and continuing into October.

This gives home gardeners the opportunity of continuous cropping throughout late Summer and early Fall. Zone 3.
Canby (June Bearing)
Thornless Red Raspberry. Large, good flavored, firm, juicy, bright red berry with fine quality. The canes are vigorous and productive. Heavy bearer. Canby shows a high level of virus resistance and aphid immunity. Sensitive to Root Rot so good soil drainage is required. Zone 4.

Plant 14-18" apart in rows 24-36" apart. Plant strawberries to a depth where the crown is just above the soil. Need frequent deep soaking, especially in bearing season. Feed plants twice a year, once when growth begins again after the first crop. Cut runners to encourage more fruit, keeping one to two runners to replace plants every 2 years and cutting out the old growth.
Albion (Ever Bearing)
The long, conical, firm fruit has outstanding flavor and attractive internal and external fruit color. Resists verticillium wilt, phytophthora crown rot and some resistance to anthracnose crown rot. Day neutral variety.

Sequoia (June Bearing)
Very large, dark red berries with real good flavor. Fair to good quality for dessert and freezing.

It is actually an extremely long season June Bearing Type when in cold climates. An early bearer that keeps bearing fruit several weeks after the typical spring crop is gone. Hardy in zones 6.
Shuksan (June Bearing)
Midseason. The very large, firm berries are bright red, broad wedge-shaped. The plants are vigorous. Good for fresh eating and excellent for freezing. Shuskan is winter hardy and tolerates alkaline soils better than any other variety. DOES NOT demand perfect drainage.
