Grow the Rainbow: Varieties with Extraordinary Color

Sometimes it’s just more fun to grow something most of your friends and family have never seen before. A yellow raspberry, a pink blueberry... keep everyone guessing with these specially bred varieties.

We’ll let your fellow gardeners share with you exactly why they love these unique fruits:

Anne Yellow Raspberry - It’s the color that makes the Anne Raspberry a standout but its hardiness and productive nature will make it your favorite raspberry.

“I prefer their flavor over all of my traditional red raspberries. They are also pretty hardy and easy to grow.” - Kathleen D.

“I got three plants and had cascades of big golden berries all summer and well into the fall. They taste like a cross between an apricot and a raspberry. I had lots for eating and for baking.” Laura P.

Pink Lemonade Blueberry – They taste as good as they sound, and the pink flowers in the spring are exceptionally pretty compared to other blueberry varieties.

“I started out with 2 plants and after tasting the 1st crop of berries, I am hooked on the pinks! I find them more flavorful than the blues and they are very sweet. I ordered 8 more plants.” Mariette C.

“Out of the 10+ varieties of blueberries I grow, Pink Lemonade blueberries have the best flavor.” - Andie B.

White Pineberry This white strawberry-like fruit with red seeds has a completely unique burst of flavor. Bonus points, critters are looking for colorful fruit and may bypass them!

“I can't believe how many berries we got in the second season of planting it. Grows real fast. My kids absolutely love them.” Roger B.

“These are the best berries that I have ever tasted. Only wish there were more berries to the plant. Once tasted, you can't stop enjoying the goodness.” - Michael F.

Emperor Francis Sweet Cherries - Yellow cherries with a rosy blush. Homemade maraschino cherries, anyone?

“Our tree is now 3 years old and has started producing fruit. Not a ton, but enough for a few delightful handfuls of cherries. They're delicious and very sweet.” - ‘Blissfully I’

“We planted this tree last spring. We got half a dozen cherries off it this year. I am pleasantly surprised as I didn't expect to get fruit so soon. I expect it will do better each year.” - Jennifer D.

LSU Gold Fig - In addition to the unique fig color, it’s fast-growing and a heavy producer that is well suited to containers.

“This fig tree is covered in figs, and I just planted it late last summer! The first figs ripened several weeks ago. They are huge and taste heavenly. I am growing this in a large pot on my deck, and will take it into the garage during winter.” - Peggy D.

“This tree took right away after I planted it in a container. It made one or two figs its very first Summer.” - Margaret P.

Crimson Night Raspberry Plant A rainbow of berries will only be complete with purple. And these are exceptionally hardy and resistant to common berry pests.

“This is the best tasting red raspberry variety I have tried. Handles sun scalding better than most.” - Chris R.

“One of my favorite plants. Three things I love about these purple delicious berry plants are : 1. The taste is superb. 2. The look alone of the leaves is stunning. 3. It's very productive.” - Anthony H.

Snowbank White Blackberry – This is a brand-new-to-us variety cultivated by the famous Luther Burbank in 1916. It was specifically designed for superior flavor to other white blackberries.

"An amazing addition to our berries patch!
We love these berries! They have almost a citrus taste to them and tbeir color is is dazzling. Our plants are incredibly healthy and thriving. I'm hoping to use them in some recipes next year. This year we just couldn't stop eating them!" - Rebecca C.
