Fresh berries are becoming more and more valued by U.S. consumers as more information becomes available as to the health benefits of fresh fruit in the diet. There are regions of Utah that are well suited to growing raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, currants and grapes. There are commercial plantings scattered from Rich to Washington Counties. Berry crops are also popular in the home garden. Utah State University is working to address the needs of both the commercial fruit industry and the home gardener through Teaching, Research, and Extension programs.
