Description

Compact and thornless! Harvest light red berries with ease. Fruit flavor is sweet with a vanilla essence. No need to trellis or stake this plant. Sturdy canes give an appealing natural mound shape. Grows well in containers! Ripens in late June early July. Self-pollinating. May be covered by USPP #22,141 or other patents. NR7 cultivar.

Note: Do not plant Red, Gold or Purple raspberries within 75-100 feet of Black raspberries. Black raspberries may be more susceptible to viral diseases carried by aphids to and from nearby raspberry plants.

After planting, be sure to prune the bare-root canes back to about 2 inches above the ground. (This does not apply to potted raspberry plants.) Do not skip this step! It is a crucial factor in encouraging the roots to send up new growth during the growing season. It is in the nature of raspberry plants to send up new growth as suckers or basal shoots from below the ground. This means the canes that you plant may not be where you find signs of life or new growth. When it’s time to grow, you will see new sprouts emerge from the ground around where you planted the cane, and this growth is coming from the raspberry plant’s root system.
