Double Gold Raspberry

This item is out of stock.

Supplies are limited so make sure you don't miss out next time by having us automatically notify you when it becomes available again.


Unique blushed color is outstanding in fruit displays. Fruit color ranges from peachy gold to vibrant coral. Highly productive plants bear crops of conical-shaped raspberries with a tender, juicy texture and excellent flavor – easily a fan favorite! Ideal choice for variety in “u-pick” stands and farmer’s markets. Introduced in 2012 by Cornell University. Named for its “double” bearing nature: Fall-bearing (everbearing) primocane with a summer crop. Floricane berries ripen in July. Primocane berries ripen in September through frost. Disease-resistant to phytophthora root rot and common leaf issues. Cold-hardy. Self-pollinating. A licensed variety of Cornell University. May be covered by USPP #24,811 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.

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.

Why is the summer crop on my golden raspberries bitter and the fall crop sweet?
Lacey H on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are many reasons, depending upon how old the plants are and where you're located. Are you overwintering with a different mulch than you use in the summer months? That will affect the flavor of the spring crop. If you typically have a rainy spring that's cloudy a lot, that will affect the flavor. Raspberries need a lot of sun to sweeten. If the canes are young, that's another reason. With maturity, they grow sweeter berries. Too much fertilizer will make berries bitter; are you overdoing it in the spring?
still curious about the way these are growing. two have straight stalks about 6-8" tall with small clumps of what may be berries. no flowers. I called and was told they do this. they are nothing like my other raspberries. now I read they are primocane - I have prime Jim too. will these grow like those?
Maggie on Jun 16, 2017
Can I sell these berries at markets?
Rene B on Nov 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Sure, you can. This is a farmer's market favorite.
Do these throw out runners?
Rene B on Nov 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, lots.
Are these heat tolerant enough for Central Texas, Austin?
Darleen R on Oct 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I can't say for sure but I live in the central valley in CA our summer temp is around 98 every day with heatwaves in the 110s and fairly warm nights and the plant grew fine but the berries got burnt, I had to build a shade for them, hopefully next year they will be better!
Are these plants thorn-less?
Lisianna on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are not thornless, but they have fewer/less-ominous thorns than most raspberry plants. Just wear gloves when you prune/pick and the results will be more than worth the effort. This is an extraordinary raspberry from Cornell University.
Is a double gold raspberry thornless?
Connie S on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: yes they have small thorns and a lot of them. But the fruit is great.
Are these thornless?
Julie P on Feb 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These do have thorns but not very long ones. be careful handling - I usually
pull on a leaf to bring the runner close enough to pick the berries. These
are very delicious and sweet.

BEST ANSWER: It has a rather large root system and you won't get as many berries, but you can plant it in a large container.
What is a Jumbo Cell?
Conrad B. on Aug 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A Jumbo Cell Pack is a bigger version of the divided 6-packs in which you might have bought annuals or vegetable plants in at a garden center. These one-year-old plants are new starts - about 4-6" tall - and will grow rapidly during the next growing season.

The 1-gallon plant is in a #1 trade gallon pot (about 2/3 of a standard gallon) and is two years old, and has an an advanced root system. These plants are two years old and about a foot tall at shipping.
if Logan berries growth horizontally how do you use a trellis to keep the fruit off the soil?

Suckers *FREELY* is a TRUE characteristic of this Cultivar
I thoroughly enjoy the taste of the berries. This variety might, with justice, also be called Exponential, since the asexual reproduction rate could be described as almost doubling each year. Stay away from this cultivar if you avoid mint plants because this raspberry might be related. ;)

God's gift to human taste buds
Abundant clusters, of magnificent, ultra flavorful, berries. They are great in hot oatmeal with brown sugar, a pat of butter, and a little bit of milk. It is raspberry flavor, that will last in your mouth for a short while. A thrilling plant to grow, to be sure.

The plants made it thru -25 to -30 for a week last winter.
Berries this year hopefully and little plants poking up too!

A second year producer
I planted these last spring an it took them a growing season to get established as I believe they are floricane raspberries. This year they came out in March and are vigorous, with lots of blooms. Can't wait to taste them!

Double gold raspberry
Does very well in hot, humid south Louisiana, if allowed morning sun only.
Planted on east side of shade tree. Sheltered from scorching sun from 11:00 A.M. through-out day. The berries are medium in size, lite-red to pink in color,
moderately sweet and very productive. Planted in 45 gal. containers with 30 min. drip irrigation daily.

I definitely would recommend these plants. Well worth the up front expense, as they took off and spread like wild fire! I am soooo looking forward to my harvest!

No berries yet but hardy and multiplying
We ordered several new berries last year and this variety stayed quite small all summer, so we weren't sure how it would come through the winter. We had a hard winter in Southeast Alaska this year and lost reliable perennials, but double gold came through with vigor. It has multiplied and is growing with vigor. We look forward to a few berries to sample some day and hope they are as much of a treat as the Anne Yellow berries were last summer. Worth trying if you are interested in variety and hardiness in the raspberry garden.
Yummy berry test would bump the rating to a five...we'll see! ??

Very tasty
I received three healthy plants last year, and still have three healthy plants this year. They didn't do much after being planted last summer, but this spring we're already pulling small handfuls of berries off the second-year canes. Can't wait to see what the first year canes will do!
