Harry Nichols, extension horticulturist at lowu Stute College, says raspberries thrive best on a rich, sandy loam soil that holds moisture but is well drained. Don't put the new patch on the site of an old one or next to a neglected patch. For planting time, spring is best— and early in the spring, too. Soil for the bed should be manured heavily before the plants go into the ground. As to how many plunts to order, Nichols says 50 bearing plants of any kind of raspberry will produce from 35 to 75 quarts during the season. The red berries grow best from central Iowa north; the blacks, the southern half of the state. And the purple canes are increasing in popularity, though they produce more of a canning berry. Usually just one variety of a kind is sufficient—although you might like to try more. If you like red rasp berries, the Latham is the loading variety but the Chief will ripen n lit tie earlier. The Cumberland is per haps the leading black cap, but Bris lol, Black Beauty and the New Logan have proven very satisfactory. Lead ing variety of purple cane is the Sodus, with the Potomac extremely we" adapted to northeastern Iowa. Nichols says raspberries aren't dif flcult to grow—yet only one farm in 20 has them.
