Very early fruiting everbearing red raspberry has performed very well in our Fedco trials. Large firm berries with very good flavor on vigorous and productive short canes. Ripens in late August or early September in northern districts.
According to David Handley of UMaine, “as near a thing to a sure bet.” Easy to pick: the berries hang off the tops of the plants.
Everbearing raspberries bear on first-year canes (primocanes) and are particularly desirable for northern growers because they can die (or be cut) to the ground and still produce a sizable crop the following year. Suckers freely. Z4. (certified virus-free bare-root plants)
Raspberries and Blackberries are self-pollinating; a second variety is not needed for pollination.
