Raspberry Heritage


 
Everbearing type produces fruit on first year's growth, bears fruit in early summer and then again in early fall, medium-large dark red berries are sweet with a mild flavor, sturdy canes seldom require stalking

There are 2 types of Raspberries, summer-bearing which produce fruit in summer and ever-bearing which produce fruit in the fall as well as summer. The first year after planting, all the flowers should be removed to allow the plant to build up reserves. From the second year on, the plants will flower in the spring and the Raspberries will ripen in the summer. Raspberry plants need adequate water and fertilizer in the spring and summer, but quantities should be decreased in fall to harden the canes for winter. In the winter the old flowered canes should be pruned to ground level.
