Only grow Taylors
I have grown raspberries for 40 years and though I've tried many other varieties,I always return to my tried and true Taylor. They are large, firm ,prolific and most of all , delicious! They freeze well, holding their shape and make excellent jams and jellies.

Not very productive in Idaho Falls
I bought these last year and planted them in our raspberry patch. We grow Canby, Latham, and Queen Ann raspberries along with the Taylor. Four out of five plants survived to this year. But they do not grow very fast here, they are still less than 3 feet tall. Taste good, which is why they get 3 stars instead of 2.

Purchased one plant in 2014, I now have a large patch. This variety is very healthy, spreads readily, and best of all the fruit is PERFECT! Very Delicious, I highly recommend!
