Specialty Crops for Cold Climates
New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station has released Growing Kiwiberries in New England: An Online Guide for Regional Producers. The resource includes a statewide market assessment, a detailed production manual, and an enterprise analysis for regional growers. The Experiment Station has been conducting kiwiberry research since 2013 and is providing information to help Northeast growers decide whether or not to plant this increasingly popular crop. Researchers say there is great potential for kiwiberry, citing consumer interest, the Northeast’s established valuation of local produce and direct-market horticultural crops, and the extremely low level of regional production to date.
