Is the July crop produced on 2nd year floricanes?
cmcree on Feb 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Everbearing varieties produce fruit on the primocane tips, usually in September of the first year. The second year they produce berries on lower portions of floricane that had not fruited the previous season.

Jumped out of the ground!
I am in Paradise CA, zone 9A, Sierra Nevada Foothills. I bought these bare root and planted them in a cool wet spring. They have exploded, and we have been picking berries now in July. Lots of new canes, can't wait to see what they do in the fall. Packed and shipped very well, best of three online nurseries I bought from by far. All of our local nurseries burned down or closed in the Camp Fire, lots of sun now for berries. Good communication on shipping, great experience overall.

Fast Growing
These are raspberry vines, not bushes. They grow very fast. Had raspberries the 1st year. This is the 2nd year and already the vines are multiplying like crazy. Very happy so far.

Great Berry
Of the five raspberries I planted, Heritage and Amity are the ones with the best flavor, by far. The Amity even have good flavor before they are fully red.
