Our research program has three primary objectives:

  • to develop blackberry, red and black raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry cultivars for the commercial small fruit industry.
  • to expand germplasm available to plant breeders by collecting wild species of Rubus, Vaccinium and Fragaria. This material is then evaluated and incorporated into advanced breeding material.
  • identification and evaluation of potential new small fruit crops.
