Abstract

Diverse geographical and climatic zones in North Carolina permit the culture of a full range of small fruit crops, including rabbiteye and highbush blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and muscadine and bunch grapes. However, information on specific cultivars is scattered throughout various horticultural publications and nursery catalogs and is not readily available. We have developed an extension software program, SELECT-A-BERRY, which facilitates retrieval of small fruit cultivar and nursery information. The menu-driven program has been formatted for the Tandy 1000 (Radio Shack, a Division of Tandy Corp., Fort Worth, Texas) microcomputers recently installed in all North Carolina county extension offices, but it will also run on the IBM-PC and other MS-DOS systems with 256 K bytes of computer memory. Although the program is designed primarily to assist North Carolina commercial and home garden extension clienteles, SELECT-A-BERRY can be modified by agreement with us and the N.C. Agricultural Extension Service for use in other regions as well.
