Description

A must for the edible landscape! Plant features red canes and bountiful red berries. Fruit is conical in shape with a glossy deep-red appearance. Thick, sturdy canes grow vigorously, but need protection from winter elements. More compact growth habit in colder, northern gardens making it suitable for container gardening. Discovered in 2003; introduced in 2012 by Cornell University. Fall-bearing (everbearing) primocane with a summer crop. Floricane berries ripen in late June. Primocane berries ripen in late August through frost. Disease-resistant to phytophthora root rot and leaf issues. Cold-hardy. Self-pollinating. A licensed variety of Cornell University. May be covered by U.S.P.P. #24949 or other patents.

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.

Why did you choose this?
Stark Bro's Store
Description says it will do well in a container. I asked the online Master Gardener for a suggestion to keep the plant roots contained in my community garden plot and they suggested a 2 ft diameter pot set down in the soil. So, I chose this variety. Also, indicated for my Zone 7 location.

How tall is the raspberry plant?
Liliya L on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Liliya, they are about 3 feet tall. I don't have anything for them to grow up on, so they grow up and then grow out. I have them planted in a 3 foot X 2 foot self watering planter. I cut them back except for 1 stalk in the winter. My wife picks some every morning during the season. Hope this helps you.
What does it mean that it needs protection from winter elements?
Mar W on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Some plants require a "blanket" of insulation so the roots are not damaged over the winter. There is an excellent article about preparing your plants for winter here:

I like this raspberry, but one died. Yes I would recommend it. The two that survived are growing strongly.
