Raspberry Plants are found growing as native bushes of America that grew in the wild stage in early Colonial America, and those species from the wild have been brought into the research laboratory by researchers to produce outstanding new hybrid raspberry bush cultivars that mature the berries in colors of red, black, gold and wine.
Scientists at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva New York have introduced many hybrid raspberries with their excellent dreamy flavors, oversized berries and a greatly extended shelf life. These new raspberry plant cultivars were distributed nationally to be propagated by U.S berry nursery growers. These new hybrid everbearing raspberry bushes are today a certain favorite for the home grower raspberry garden, because of the early spring crops that are followed by another plentiful harvest in the fall. These novel raspberry cultivars have also been established for commercial raspberry bush growing in the United States, and especially in Central America where the raspberry crop is available all year in markets that are flown by air into the United States for winter distribution.
