The blackberries chiefly grown in California are the Lawton, Crandall
and the Mammoth. The raspberry chiefly grown is the Cuthbert. There are
very few of these berries dried. It would be better to dry them in an

is doubtful whether it would pay to plant blackberries for drying only,
because there is such a large product flow in various places where the
