Visitors will be able to see alternative fruit that grows well in North Dakota.

The Northern Hardy Fruit Evaluation Project will be the focus of one of four tours offered during the North Dakota State University Carrington Research Extension Center’s 60th annual field day set for July 16.

All field day events begin at 9 a.m. with a welcome from center director Blaine Schatz. Tours will begin at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lunch will be served at noon. No preregistration is needed.

The Northern Hardy Fruit Evaluation Project field tour starts at 9:30 a.m. Kathy Wiederholt, Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) fruit project manager, will lead the tour of the center’s fruit orchard.

The Northern Hardy Fruit Evaluation Project was established in 2006 to introduce and demonstrate alternative, economically viable fruits that will grow in North Dakota. The project features black currant and Juneberry variety trials, as well as demonstration plantings of University of Saskatchewan cherries and haskaps; apples; aronia; red and black currants; grapes; honeyberries; and plums.

The CREC livestock, crop and organic production tours also begin at 9:30 a.m.
