Primocane Red Raspberry Plant Collection

We are no longer offering this product. If you would like additional information about this item, or assistance finding something similar, please contact us.


Enjoy multiple harvests from long-lived plants. Adaptable most all areas of the U.S., primocane raspberry varieties produce fruit on the first-year canes, bearing in the fall until frost. The low-maintenance plants produce exceptional berries. While all raspberries are self-pollinating, the presence of a different variety nearby will give you an abundance of flowers and more berries from each plant. Plus, you’ll get a discounted price when purchasing a collection compared to purchasing the plants individually.

Note: Do not plant Red, Gold or Purple raspberries within 75-100 feet of Black raspberries. Black raspberries may be susceptible to viral diseases carried by aphids from nearby raspberry plants.

Best choice of primocane berries.

Better value buying plant collection. Heritage variety is at the top of my list and Himbo will be new to me but it has gotten good reviews.

To add to my raspberry patch I already have.

These are virtually maintenance free. I planted them against a fence where I throw some annual flower seeds and these are growing well. Looking forward to adding more kinds this year. Honestly these are maintenance free and thriving. My kind of gardening!

Primocanes produce berries on last year's growth in addition to this year's growth - so you get 2 crops of raspberries per plant. I love raspberries and can't get enough. I've had great luck with other Stark Bros primocane stock, so I figured I'd give these a try. With their anniversary pricing for this collection, it was a no-brainer!

At local nurseries, usually have choice between Heritage and Canby. Wanted to experiment with other varieties. The zone-finder has us for zone 9, but we're really more zone 8, in the Sierra Foothills. Berries grow well here. These look promising!

I cannot afford to keep buying as many raspberries as my kids will eat. We are going to try to grow our own and save some $$!

what is the disease ratings on red raspberries and blueberrys especially Phytophthora ?
bob s on Mar 10, 2020
will these produce raspberries the first year?
Sherry P on Apr 22, 2020
I don't recall us getting any raspberries the first year. It typically takes longer for the plants to get established and provide fruit. I'd be suspicious if a seller said you'd get much that first year.

high yield, and delicious
When I got the canes, they were not wrapped at all, and the roots were bone dry, so I only got half of what I ordered to live. Other than that, they are lovely and produce a lot of berries.

Customer Service was good - Shipping was not
Customer Service and Sales was good and helpful [I ended up buying more than I was planning].
But fulfillment (shipping) dropped the ball.
I was supposed to get the plants via FedEx on Saturday. But because Shipping dropped the ball someplace/somewhere, the plants stayed in some warehouse for 3 extra days that they should not have.
Shipping should hold on and protect the plants till the next week before shipping the plants out so they are not suffering in some truck or warehouse.

six out of 24 plants grew
When zero of the first 12 plants grew, the company was very good to replace them. That made for a late start, which may have made it harder, but only 6 of that batch grew. None of the Jaclyn variety grew. I have 6 bushy little plants, with no fruit set to date, so it's hard to rate their production.

Easy to grow
I would HIGHLY recommend this product in Southern Ohio. I purchased and planted these last spring. They are prolific growers. First year production was surprisingly good. These plants need support as the fruit weighs them down.

This set of plants sends off a lot of shoots. Make sure they have plenty of space as they will encroach on your garden. A year after planting 6 cane, I have a solid row of cane 18 feet long. These raspberries don't need much attention. Just make sure they are adequately watered and supported and they will produce.

Nice red raspberries
This collection arrived in good condition and took off with the good root system. Some plants are blooming and setting fruit this summer. I added these to a collection I planted last year. Looking forward to a good crop next spring.

Best raspberry plant
Ordered several varieties of Raspberries from Stark, the Primocane did the best the first year and is twice the size of every other berry plant in the second year. A great choice and worth the extra cost.

Fast shipping
Plants came within a week of placing the order. Root system was well established, but growth was on the lower roots...soaked them for 4 hours upon arrival, planted , watered regularly. Never had any growth from the roots or the canes. All 6 were just dead canes. I have ordered many products from Stark Bros. The quality is usually excellent, but have found with the warmer weather in Southern Mississippi, that tress, shrubs, fruits, do so much better planted in the fall , than the spring...may give it a try again this fall...but in this instance not satisfied at all.
