New Guide to Growing High Tunnel Raspberries

Did you know that twin cities residents eat more raspberries per capita than any other US city? Raspberries are a high value, high demand specialty crop worthy of precious high tunnel real estate. Growing them in high tunnels rather than the open field increases yield and fruit quality, extends the growing season, and protects the berries from disease by excluding rainfall. 

We have noticed increased interest in high tunnel raspberries among Minnesota specialty crop farmers in recent years, which is great. In response, we just published a new 19-page guide, Organic High Tunnel Raspberry Production.

You can download the guide as a PDF here, from University of Minnesota Extension: Organic High Tunnel Raspberry Production Guide

In this guide:

  • Variety recommendations
  • Production tips for crop productivity and season extension
  • Organic disease, insect pest, and weed management
  • Organic spotted wing Drosophila options
  • Nutrient management
