It can no longer be said that small fruits are not successful in South Dakota. Everywhere in the state people are having remarkable success with the small fruits providing they confine their efforts only to the hardy varieties. It is true that there are some of the small fruits that cannot be recommended for use here, because of their lack of hardiness, but there are plenty of hardy ones from which to choose. In the near future there are almost certain to be more hardy varieties developed by our plant breeders.
