Jaclyn Primocane Red 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.


Enjoy crops in summer and fall! This variety gives you two seasons of sweet, flavorful berries that are good for fresh eating, freezing, or making jams, jellies and desserts. Canes grow vigorously (reaching about 5' tall) and resist many pests and diseases. Fruit is less prone to rot or sunscald than most. 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 USPP #15,647 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.

I have had these now for just a year and I have to tell you I would pick this variety every time. They gave me berries the first year all the way up until November (in Ohio).They are already sprouting and new ones are coming up near by. Extremely satisfied!!

At the end of the season, Do I cut the HImbo Top Primocane and Jaclyn Primocane Red Raspberries to the gound before winter??
maggie on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I leave the first year canes that produced the fall berries, in place. These later produce the early summer berries, then die back in their second year. That is the best time to trim them to the ground.
Are Jaclyn raspberries thornless or thorny?
Myleah K on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Like most raspberries, this one is soft-prickly but I wouldn't call it thorny, say like a rose bush. The are very easy to gently reach in and pick. No problem. Hope that helps. B-
Does this variety need to be mowed down each year, or let them to continue to grow?
Victor W on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They grow like other varieties. But you get a couple harvests. Don't cut them down too soon. When they brown naturally, cut them out.
How tall are the plants when they get here?
Ivy N on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These are great raspberries. The plants arrive with a single came sticking up about 15". Buds come from these and the subsurface and will grow ultimately to about 5' tall. Canes in their second year will produce a second crop in early summer. New canes produce a vigorous late summer crop. Enjoy!
I would like to order three of these raspberry plants to be delivered next spring. How can I do that? Thanks, Lisa Knudsen

a meal in itself
I bought these plants 2 years back and they outperform the regular raspberries 4 to one. They are huge and luscious in the flavor . Mine never make it to the kitchen for others to enjoy.

Good for High Altitude (7600 ft)
I am very happy with Jaclyn Primocane Red Raspberry. It produced the first year and went through our Colorado winter in good shape. It seems to spread so plant it where you can contain it.

Amazing Raspberry
These bore fruit the first year. By year 2 we had enough for jam and to freeze. Delicious, long bearing season. I couldn't ask for anything better.

I'm Glad You Asked
Last spring I planted 7 new varieties of raspberries. 6 - 12 plants of each variety. The Jaclyn Primocane and the Himbo varieties were the least productive. All of the others survived and produced berries the first year. The Jaclyn Primocanes had 2 survivors out of 6 plants. The Himbos had 1 of 6 plants survive. This spring all of the other varieties have not only survived, they are spreading everywhere with lots of new shoots. The 2 Jaclyn Primocanes and 1 Himbo have survived the winter and appear to be doing well but are not spreading with new shoots like the others. How would I rate them? Poorly. Disappointing.

Great berries
Great berries on 5 ft tall canes twice a year. Vigorous growers with fruit the first Fall. Looking forward to my first early summer crop on last year's canes.

What started out as four little sticks last spring has turned into a massive raspberry patch, producing lucious berries! Just what I hoped for!

The fruit is excellent but the plant has been susceptible to insects. Even still, it has vigorously grown after its first winter, easily quadrupling in size. We have yet to see any infestations this spring, or evidence of infestation. The fact that even with the plum tree beetles (identified by a local UoI branch Master Gardner) it still bore fruit on the year it was planted shocked me. I would buy this again because of fruit quality and plant resilience.
