Interpretive Summary: Black raspberry is an important canebery fruit crop in the Pacific Northwest. In this paper we describe a multi-state project to phenotype 42 traits in two black raspberry mapping populations in 11 geographically distinct locations. A summary of the means, sample size and range of traits including important phenological stages, flowering, plant and fruit characteristics, and fruit chemistry traits is provided. Variation in traits across populations, locations, and years was observed, but was trait dependent. This phenotypic data will be included in the Breeders Toolbox at the Genome Database for Rosaceae.

Technical Abstract: Black raspberry (Rubus occidentalis), is one of a group of economically important members of the genus Rubus. In this paper we describe a multi-state project to phenotype 42 traits in black raspberry. Two mapping populations that had parental material from multiple sources, including wild germplasm from North Carolina, Ontario and Maine were used to assess phenotypes in 11 geographically distinct locations. A summary of the means, sample size and range of traits including important phenological stages, flowering, plant and fruit characteristics, and fruit chemistry traits is provided in this reportpaper. Variation in traits across populations, locations, and years was observed, but was trait dependent. This phenotypic data will be included in the Breeders Toolbox at the Genome Database for Rosaceae.
