These are supposed to be vigorous and excellent tasting. They will cross pollinate with our ever-bearing Jaclyn Primocane Red Raspberries.

Are these thornless?
Jerry W on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, these raspberries are not thornless. However, I understand that
that the thornless plants produce less berries. I have been extremely
happy with the plants I got.
should Caroline raspberry canes be pruned; if so, prune the spring canes that produced or prune after the fall yield ?
Gary C on Jul 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My raspberry canes die after the season they produce. When the leaves wither and the cane begins to get hard, I trim it 4 to 6 inches above the ground. After a couple years I have noticed canes grow from the previous seasons/year as well as come up from the roots.
are these thornless?
joy d on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Carolina has soft thorns that become more rigid after the cane produces and dies. While growing the are more akin to hairs.

Caroline Raspberry is Tops
Compared to previous varieties of raspberries we've had in our garden, the Caroline is far superior. It is a dependable producer, and gives us plump, delicious berries well into the fall(with a bit of protection from frosts). We freeze them separately on trays, then pack them in freezer bags and have raspberries for breakfast cereal toppings throughout the winter.

Healthy and vigorous
I have grown these for many years. I ordered some from another company and they came up with rust, so I pulled them up, burned them and prayed my soil would be okay. I planted 2 beds of these with Heritage as a pollinator and they are sturdy healthy plants with plenty of green leaves and flowers. I know from experience that the fruit on these will be just great!
