Nectarine blossoms

We’ve written several stories on this site about innovations happening at the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre – sweet potatoes, world crops, disease-resistant roses, new tomato varieties and even a robotic mushroom picker.

Here’s subject we haven’t covered yet: how Vineland is helping farmers meet consumer demands for locally grown fruit.

There’s a great article in the Fort Erie Times by Rob Houle that tells the story of Ontario-grown plums, nectarines, apricots and more.
