Dependable and great tasting berry. These are the first replacement Latham plants I have bought since I planted original plants around 1990. Just want to fill in a few bare spots that have developed over the years as I have tried to keep rows straight.

Can I cut canes off in the fall?
Diane G on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Only canes which have already fruited.
Just wondering if this berry is thornless? Thanks, Mike.

BEST ANSWER: Mine has thorns tho they are pretty small.
what is the difference between black berries and black raspberries?
stephen s on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Black raspberries are a hybrid of blackberries and raspberries. Be careful not to plant these with 100' of either blackberries or raspberries due to disease-spread through aphids.

Latham Red Raspberry
What arrived as spindly bareroot raspberry canes, quickly rooted and thrived beyond my expections. My blackerries haven't done so well, but that's a climate/conditions issue. Thanks!

Satisfied customer
I planted three last summer by the fence where erosion was a problem, two survived and got only a handful of the most delicious raspberries I have ever tasted. I look forward to what the plant produces this year.

Plants grew like crazy
All plants made it through upstate NY winter and thrived during growing season. I'm expecting some fruit this year.

Only a few berries were obtained, but I have good growth for next year.
Only a few berries appeared on the planted canes. New canes are abundant so next year should be better after a strenuous thinning of weaker canes. The berries did not appear to be as big as my current variety of raspberries. The taste was good. I don't know the variety of my older canes. I may be able to give a more complete evaluation next Summer.

The overall best raspberry
For the upper Midwest, this is the raspberry you want. The flavor is the most intense classic raspberry flavor of all the varieties I planted. Grows like crazy, doesn't seem to mind heat or cold or wet, tolerates dry spells well too, but keep watering for the juiciest berries.

Produced a crop the first year
Canes were bare root and dormant when arrived about 15" long and were planted in March of 2016. They produced a few raspberries the first year and several canes came up from the soil around that are the fruiting canes of this year. This year the fruiting canes are loaded with buds and there are several next years fruiting canes emerging now. Established very well.
