The large berries of ‘Caroline’ have a very rich, sweet, full-bodied flavor. A fall-bearing type, it ripens in late summer and produces berries until frost. In many areas, that means you can pick berries for 6-8 weeks. The firm and juicy berries are excellent for fresh eating, canning, freezing and for making jams, jellies, sauces, desserts and preserves. Caroline is a highly productive self-pollinating variety that starts bearing fruit 2 years from the date of planting. It’s tolerant to root rot and has a high resistance to gray mold.
