Lincoln County Extension Agent Daniel Shires and his summer intern Abby Whitaker are monitoring flower to fruit development at a blackberry farm in Cleveland, NC. They took pictures of 5 flowers of Ouachita (101-105), Von (201-205), Navaho (301-305), Osage (401-405) and Natchez (501-505) flowers when they were at full bloom on 5/21 (left image), then went back on 5/29 (right image) and took pictures of those same flowers/fruit. They will be returning on a regular basis so we can find out how long it takes each of the flowers to ripen fully.
