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.

These are terrific - I think!!!
We enjoyed a June crop and now for a month there has been nothing - I'm optimistic they will produce fruit in end of August into September - would love some now but will be happy whenever! They are certainly healthy strong plants!

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.

Great multipliers
Yes, I recommend the Latham red raspberries. We planted four last year and now they've multiplied to two dozen plants!
