Coupar-Angus, 4f ml. to the south of Blairgowrie, became the centre of another Raspberry district. The holdings in the Coupar-Angus district are on an average somewhat larger than the holdings in the Alyth district. The land, while heavier, is lower lying, and has suffered more in recent years from frost. The trade, however, has developed rapidly, and that notwithstanding a lack of co-operation on the part of the growers. There was for a time a Fruitgrowers' Association in the district. Now most of the fruit is being handled by dealers. These figures show the gross tonnage dispatched from Coupar-Angus in recent years: 1906, 188 tons; 1908, 138 tons; 1909, 610 tons; 1910, 654 tons.
