SHERRY W on Aug 24, 2017
We love the flavor of the yellow raspberries.
Debra G on Jun 8, 2017
It is a Primocane plant, so even if the canes die back in winter, it should still produce fruit after our unpredictable and often very cold winters in CO.
SHERRI B on May 29, 2017
We had some when I was a kid and they are very good berries.
Martha D on May 14, 2017

Had some of these years ago, but they got lost in the tall weeds. They were delish.
Annie B on Apr 6, 2016
I bought some two years ago , hoping they would survive in my zone (Zone 8, with crazy back&forth weather). They have produced abundantly.
LUELLEN H on Apr 6, 2016
These will be new for us and one worth trying apparently. It is supposed to be vigorous and excellent tasting. The color will look nice too next to the red raspberries.
Joseph S on Mar 19, 2016
I use to have the yellow ever bearings years ago and loved them. They died out one winter and I'm finally going to replace them.

Can you plant Anne Yellow Berries in containers?
Seadog on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have mine in a extra large cloth pot with pebbles at the bottom. After the second year I noticed a runner coming out from underneath the pot, but it could be from my heritage red raspberries that are in a pot up against my anne raspberries. Either way, it's because I put them in cloth pots. While the cloth pots are great for drainage, runners are the risk you take. And since mine are in their forever spot in my yard, I don't mind. I bought frost fabric for them and carefully wrapped all three pots up together in late autumn and they did great over the winter (I live in zone 7a).
I'm a bit confused about the pruning care. We're told to prune these back but also mow them down to the ground after the second season. Can you explain this a bit more thoroughly?
SuseyQ on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Anne raspberry is what they call a "primocane" producing raspberry. That means it grows from the roots to full size in one season and produces berries on that first year growth. There are two ways to prune these, but most experts recommend that you cut them to the ground each year. That gives you one crop, late in the season, but bigger.

Primocanes are the easiest brambles to prune because you cut or mow them to the ground each winter.
anyone know how deep the roots go? trying to decide whether I can plant over a septic system? thanks
Hannah L on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Plant away! Roots are a maximum of 10 inches. Very shallowly rooted.
How do I protect the plants from deer?
Nick O on Apr 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My best protection has been to buy motion sensor sprinklers and set up a perimeter around my garden beds. You can get them on Amazon - you just set the sensitivity, hook them up to a hose, and forget about them. I never lost a plant to a deer after setting them up. I also didn't have to put in fencing, which was nice. The ones I have operate with 9v batteries.
I want to put two into a raised bed, If I get an 11" tall, by 2 ft by 4 ft, would that be big enough, or would the roots need a 4ft by 4ft... or bigger?
BC Berry crazed on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have recently changed how I raise raspberries. I also use the raised bed technique. Two plants should fit fine in the 2'x4' bed. I would suggest keeping 2.5 feet between the bushes. I have found that gives them enough room for the roots but also enough air circulation around the canes as they grow. Good luck and enjoy.
What are the minimum chill hours required? Also for zone 9 with lots of days over 100?? are they still full sun?
J P on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In Zone 9, it's best if this plant can get some late-afternoon shade. This is considered a low-chill variety and is rated to do well in Zone 9. Chill hours for berries are different than tree fruit and are calculated as an average; the growing zone rating is a better guide for berries.
Are they thornless?
Susan V on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No Susan they are not .. but they will be the best raspberry you will ever eat. They are very prolific and produce all the way till frost. I've had them in my patch for 3-4 years and never had any problems with disease or otherwise. If I had known how good they were I would have nothing but yellow in my beds. The berries are firm and juicy and sweet! Hope this helps with your decision.
Do they have thorns?
Pam B on May 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They have very tiny hairlike thorns on canes and some under leaves. If you grab onto the canes barehanded you could get a few tiny pricks but you would use gloves when you are working with them. I will admit I've handled them without. No gloves needed for picking. My kids and neighbor kids pick from them all the time.
Do the roots need pruning?
Seadog on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are like every raspberry plant I've owned and send out runners (Roots spread and new shoots/plants pop up outside the original growing area). So, there is some maintenance with keeping it contained. However, I don't know of a raspberry plant that does not do this or need this type of pruning/attention. I like the yellow as they are always sweet even when picked a little early.
Where do they grow naturally?
Lorilee on Mar 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In a sunny location. Be sure to mulch well. The flavor is superb!
Do these plants have thorns?
Michael L on Mar 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. That being said they are my family's favorite. Before I purchased them (my grandma had these in her garden when I was growing up), my family had never seen or tried them before. They are now my family's go to berries before the other berries which are three types of red. The are great freshly picked and eaten plain.
Can raspberries be grown in a greenhouse?
Nancy G on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not very successfully, because raspberries need a period of dormancy to bear fruit. They like cold winters and warm summers as opposed to the steady temperature of a greenhouse.
Do the Anne variety golden raspberry plants have thorns?
mymanotis on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they do. A good pair of garden gloves and careful picking will be well worth the effect. These are extraordinary raspberries.
What are good pollinators for yellow raspberry?
Peter B on Jan 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Caroline or Double Gold would both be great options.
If I have a 50??? round fabric planter/raised bed, can I only plant one individual plant in it? Or two or three?
Kristen M on May 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Two plants is pushing it; they will compete for nutrients. One plant would be better, but you can get away with two. Plant them 3' apart.
How far apart should these be planted? Do I plant each cane separately?
Olga P on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We recommend spacing these plants 3 - 4' apart to ensure room for growth. Yes, plant them separately.
We planted 4 types of raspberries. The ones in back did not grow as tall. We are wondering why. In back are Caroline Red and Heritage. Front" Royalty purple and Anne Yellow. Are the back ones in the shade more? Too close together? Canes are well over 6 feet in front. This is the first year. Should we prune them back the first year and when? We get below 32 degrees with ice and snow in our zone. Thanks!
S. G on Sep 28, 2016
Some varieties, such as Purple Royalty, just grow taller than others. My Heritage plants are somewhat shorter than my others. A little shade and a little crowding probably isn't harmful. Canes that grew this year will make berries next year, so don't cut them down. Next year more canes will grow which will make berries the following year, and so on. In early spring remove the dead canes (if it's their first spring there won't be many) and nip 3 or 4 inches, or more if necessary, off each tip. I'm in zone 5 and every yellow cultivar I've tried hasn't been hardy enough, though Anne survived the longest and the berries she made were marvelous.

Amazing Value
the bare roots that I received looked amazing! they were much bigger than I expected and look much better than the more expensive other varieties I got at lowes
March 14, 2016
Love These Babies!
I purchased 3 bare root plants last spring 2015... they were really slow to start, and lost one, due to the heavy rain we got last spring(root rot)... I didnt get any fruit the first year and I didnt expect too. This year they are doing fabulous and I'm getting a few fruit ever day. As I mentioned before they were slow growing last year so the floricanes are small this year but are packed with flowers and fruit... the new primacanes have grown 2 times the height and twice the stem width... of last years growth, I'm going to be overflowing with these golden jems next year... and to top it off, the new growth is starting to flower for the fall harvest... could not be happier... wish there was a place to add a picture...

Sweet and Delicious
I love these. They are sweet and delicious. I prefer their flavor to all of my traditional red raspberries. They are also pretty hardy and easy to grow.

Taste was not up to reputation
I had these in for two seasons and bought them because of their reputation for taste. Personally, they turned out the be very bland. I got much better results from the other varieties of raspberries I planted, such as the Joan J. and Jaclyn.
May 5, 2016
Two words: buy these. They're wonderful! The kids run to strip the bushes, their parents always comment on how unusual and good they are.

Yellow raspberries add color & taste to my patch
The yellow colored fruit add a morning fresh color to the patch. The fruit was tasty and of good size. My grandchildren would eat them first. It was good that they produced good crops spread out over 2+ weeks. Arriving in mid April (mid Pa) the roots were good and ready to plant with a few signs of sprouts. These plants took off with the loamy soil and Stark Bros. raspberry fertilizer. Got a moderate yield in Sept, a inkling of the next year crop. I would buy again. Stark Bros raspberry options rank #1
