Abstract or Description: 
Climatic conditions in the southeastern and northeastern parts of the state with elevations above 4,000 feet as well as parts of central Arizona with elevations from 5,000 to 6,000 feet are excellent for the production of a variety of small fruit. Small fruit refers to size of the plant, not the fruit size. These include the following cane fruits; blackberry, blueberry, current, gooseberry, kiwifruit and red raspberry. Small fruits are desirable because they can be very productive on good sites and require less management than fruit trees.
