We Picked Raspberries in January Thanks to LEDs

The crop was planted in November and, under a mixture of red and blue LEDs, grew big leaves ‘as quickly as in summer’. They were pollinated by bumble and honey bees and the fruit was picked on 31 January 2018. The trial – which used the summer variety Tulameen (rubus idaeus) – took place in a climate-controlled greenhouse. A parallel planting of blackberries, which began on 20 November 2017, exhibited flower buds in January with pollination by bees and full cropping on 27 February this year. It’s hoped that the research will help Dutch growers to have year-round production. http://luxreview.com/article/2018/05/-we-picked-raspberries-in-january-thanks-to-leds
