Vineland Research Station Makes Headlines

August 27, 2007 - In the News

The University of Guelph’s Vineland Research Station was featured in an article in this weekend's Globe and Mail. The story focused on the station's peach research.

The Vineland Research Station, which has provided the world with more than 150 new varieties of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants, celebrated its 100th anniversary last August.

About 70 per cent of the peaches grown in the Niagara Peninsula can trace their ancestry back to the station. Besides fruit varieties, the station has released cultivars of vegetables and has played a major role in Ontario’s wine industry. It's also home to the only commercial mushroom research facility in the country.
