Elwyn W. Meader was a plant breeder for 18 years at the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiement Station, University of New Hampshire in Durham, New Hampshire. He developed the raspberry variety called Fall Gold. He crossed the selection of NH 56-1 raspberry with a second generation open-pollinated selection of the cross Taylor Raspberry and the species Rubus pungens var. oldhamii. Fall Gold was tested under the name NH 64-2 starting in 1964. The name was changed to Fall Gold when it was introduced in 1967.

Fall Gold produces both primocanes and floricanes, and it is considered an everbearing variety. It produces a fall crop on the top 1/3 of the canes and a second crop the following spring on the bottom 2/3 of the canes. This variety is noted for its winter hardiness, surviving to -25'F in areas like Alaska. This hardiness is inherited from the parent Rubus pungens var. oldhamii.
