RASPBERRY

(Rubes idaeus)   Because of our erratic late spring freezes, Primocane varieties (fall bearing) are much more reliable than Floricane (summer bearing) types in the Central Mountain and Northern areas of the state. The varieties we offer are fall bearing and are some of the best for our climate. They are all self-fertile so only one variety is required to set a crop, however a selection will extend the harvest time. Over the winter simply mow or cut the canes down and dispose of them. In the spring new canes will emerge and provide a crop later that year. Home grown and freshly picked, ripe raspberries are so good that you need to plant extras so some will make it to the kitchen! Plant 18"-24" apart and allow about 6-8 canes per running foot of row. These will produce fruit for you the same year as planted.
