The Small Fruits of New York

The Small Fruits of New York was the seventh and last in a series of fruit monographs published by the New York Agricultural Experiment Station. This reference was completed by U. P. Hedrick in 1925 and has become a classic reference for those working with cultivated varieties of Rubus, Ribes and Fragaria. At NCGR-Corvallis, the descriptions and illustrations in this reference are used to verify identities of historic cultivars growing in the small fruit germplasm collections.
