What We Grow                                                

Other crops we grow


We grow Kiowa Blackberries.

The Kiowa variety is the largest of the southern blackberries. Type - Thorny, erect. Date of Release - 1996; plant patent #9861. Fruit Size - Largest of the Southern varieties; averaging 11 grams/berry, with some berries up to 13 grams.
Flavor/Sweetness - Good, soluble solids (percent sugar) averages 10 percent.
Yield - High. Maturity Date - Ripens beginning approximately mid-May well into June, and fruiting extends for six weeks, the longest fruiting of the Southern varieties.

Comments - Storage and handling potential very good, among the best of the thorny varieties.


Asparagus

We grow two varieties of asparagus on our farm.

Jersey Knight will grow taller and still keep a tight head in our warm spring weather.
Jersey Giant has to be picked shorter for the heads to remain tight, but will out produce the Jersey Knight 2 to 1. Contrary to popular belief, jumbo asparagus is just as tender as standard or pencil size.
