Raspberry 'Latham'
Raspberry Latham

Most popular raspberry noted for its exceptional June crop, large red berreis are firm and very flavorful, very vigorous and excellent producer, cut back canes after fruiting.

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.
