Don,

I read your message on the yahoo nafex group site.  If you have enough of
the Baba berry plants when you clean up your berry beds, I would love to
have 2 or 3.  I have just decided to try some berries, and hope you have
enough extra to satisfy my wish.  I have a couple of boysenberries, a
tayberry, and an ollalieberry, and your raspberry would be a welcome
addition.  I would be happy to prepay the postage, or send it to you after I
receive the berries.

My name is Martha Haber, and my address is 3059 Shadypark Drive, Long Beach,
CA  90808, e-mail is mbretthaber at yahoo.com.  Let me know by e-mail if this
will work.  If you cannot fill my request, I certainly understand.

I am a member of California Rare Fruit Growers, and am just getting started
with several fruit trees.  I'm really enjoying the experience and learning
so much.

Thanks so much for your offer,

Martha

  Donna:

     After trying Taylor, Latham, Heritage, and Hilton, I had just about
  given up on growing  red raspberries, due to poor productivity, quality
  problems (molds, crumbly berries), and lack of vigor.  At the
  recommendation of a West Coast Nafexer (now I can't remember who it
  was), I planted a berry called Baba or Bababerry, and am now producing
  major amounts of excellent raspberries.  Baba is originally a California
  berry, but is doing just great for me in humid, disease-ridden Northern
  Virginia.  It bears continuously from July through October.  Really.  On
  first-year canes.   I think the Baba flavor is just great, even allowing
  for the fact that this is a subjective judgment.

     Oddly, few nurseries carry it, and no midwestern or eastern nurseries
  that I know of.  I have ordered from Indiana Berry & Plant (But what's
  this business of selling all those banners and blowup figures?) and I
  think they are fine, but they don't carry Baba.  I am cleaning up my
  berry beds this week, and would be happy to send you a half-dozen plants
  or so, and you can't beat my prices.  Basically, I sell for nothing
  other than postage.  I know that viruses are always a consideration with
  raspberries, but, I must say, my plants look healthy as horses, and have
  shown no signs of wilts or viruses of any kind.  If you want to try
  Baba, e-mail me off the board.
