The Q&A Archives: Black Knight Raspberries

Question: I'm looking for a commercial source for a black raspberry variety "Black Knight". I've contacted the University of Maryland and unfortunately they are not keeping this variety in their screenhouse any more.

I'm interested in breeding the everbearing trait and fruit size into a "wild" variety that I have with outstanding flavor as well as a really cool Brandywine X Latham cross.

Any suggestions where I might find some?

Answer: Sounds like an interesting project! Contact Allen Plant Company, PO Box 310, Fruitland, MD 21826-0310. Phone (410) 742-7123. Or, try Brittingham Plant Farms, PO Box 2538, Salisbury, MD 21802. Phone (410) 749-5153. Good luck with your new cultivar!
