Blackberries: there are two rows (300 feet each) of thornless blackberries (summerbearing on florocanes).
Currants: new this year! Half a bed is dedicated to experimental plantings of black, red and white currants.
Gooseberries: Also new this year, a dozen each red and green gooseberry plants.
After initial success with North Blue and Patriot blueberry varieties in pilot plots, the 13 acres dedicated to blueberry production now hold over 20 varieties including, but not limited to, Jersey, Bluecrop, Elliott, Duke, Sierra, Berkley, Blueray, Coville, Late Blue, Earlyblue Toro, and Herbert. In 2011, 550 new blueberry plants will be interplanted between existing mature plants. This is in part to replace plants lost to weather or deer damage, and in part to create full hedgerows as opposed to the wider five-foot original planting plan.
2011 is an exciting year for raspberry production at Hybridoma. Over 1500 linear feet of new bramble beds were added, and both new and existing beds upgraded to a double "V" trellis system.
Red raspberry varieties: Three beds, one each of Polana (summerbearing on florocanes), Kilarney (summerbearing on florocanes), and Heritage (everbearing on primocanes).
Purple raspberries: One bed of Royalton (summerbearing on florocanes).
Black raspberries: Two beds, including Jewel (thorny black raspberry, summerbearing on florocanes) variety.
Yellow raspberries: half a bed of Queen Anne (summerbearing on florocanes)
