The name 'Small fruit' comes from the fact that the edible fruit grows on small perennial plants. Here is the list of Small Fruits that are being grown locally:
Growers and other agricultural experts refer to them as 'berries' but all the small fruit combined makes up for a significant part of our local agriculture. Many are already in season and many will be coming soon. This year has been a great year for our local small fruit harvest so far.
Look for fresh Monroe County raspberries in your area at farmers' market or farm stands.
