Raspberries are divided into 2 classes by fruit bearing habit:
• June-Bearing: Bears fruit in early summer on 2 year old canes.
• Everbearing: Bears fruit on ends of canes late in first season; and laterally on same canes early in second season.
Planting: Set out plants 1” deeper than originally grown, spreading the roots 2 1/2 - 3 feet apart. Prune back heavily at planting. Plants will produce 3 - 5 canes the first year. The roots will produce fruit for ten years.
Culture: Best in full sun. Well-drained soil is essential. Plants need regular watering: a minimum of one inch of water per week, especially during flowering and fruiting. Feed with balanced fertilizer at blossoming time. Keep the area well weeded.
Staking and Pruning: Raspberries perform best when trained on supports. String wires at 2 1/2 foot intervals on 2 stout posts spaced 5 feet apart. Tie canes to wire. On June-bearing varieties, prune out entire cane after fruiting. On Everbearing types, prune upper portion of cane after fall fruiting, and then remaining cane after spring crop.
We carry a wide variety year-round.
These are some of our favorites but represent only a fraction of what you will find at the nursery.
