For years Earliglow has been one of the biggest sellers in the Eastern U.S. for gardeners and smaller commercial growers. It is the earliest fruiting variety available. The first and second pickings are nice sized berries for eating out of hand and the later pickings are fantastic for jams and freezing.
Honeoye: This berry is a large fruit with a beautiful red color. It is firm, red clear through and is great for pies. A good fresh shipper and very winter hardy.
