Description

Grow one of the most productive berries in your garden. This plant will give you huge quantities of large, bright-red raspberries with high sugar content and an intoxicating aroma. Excellent for fresh eating, freezing or making desserts. Heavy crops require support. Not recommended for extremely hot, arid areas of the desert Southwest. Disease-resistant to phytophthora root rot. Cold-hardy. Fall-bearing (everbearing) primocane with a summer crop. Floricane berries ripen in July. Primocane berries ripen in September through frost. Self-pollinating. May be covered by U.S.P.P. #19512 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.

Good plants
All 10 plants started and are about a foot high. Starts in good condition when they arrived . Dipped them in rooting hormone that was supplied with the plants.

So many raspberries
Last year I planted two of the three sprigs and gave the third to my friend. My two springs grew really well and by the end of the season, I was getting a handful of berries every couple of days. It's springtime now and there are so many shoots coming up that I'm worried I will have too many raspberries (not possible, of course, but it would be a good problem to have!).
I will definitely buy again if/when we move.

Large berries!
I like the large size berries this plant produces. They ripen slowly so you can pick and see there will be more in a day or two. The canes reproduced and I have a raspberry patch now!

Poor Results
I planted them along the fence line but I've had very poor luck in getting them to grow. I've only got one growing .
