Description

Extremely cold-tolerant raspberry! Winter weather doesn’t deter this vigorous raspberry. Developed in Canada, it’s also known for its sweet flavor (sweeter than most red raspberries) and rich, red color. Ripens mid-season. Self-pollinating.

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.

These were described as sweet, thornless, self pollinating and cold tolerant. I live in the mountains of Northern Arizona at 7000 feet and it is hard to grow things here. I thought I would give these a try.
