Weighing the 2018 Juneberry Crop in Willsboro
July 2018. The research team at the Cornell Willsboro Research Farm has been busy picking and weighing (and tasting) the 2018 crop of Juneberries in the nursery there. The nursery, which contains a number of different varieties of the high-antioxidant berry, was established with funding from the farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program. Juneberries (amelanchier) are sold as fresh fruit and u-pick, and are popular for making jams and jellies.
The co-leaders of this project are Dr. Michael Burgess, SUNY Plattsburgh, and Cornell Willsboro Research Farm Manager Michael H. Davis. Read more about this project under the Horticulture tab, Juneberries section of this website.
