Large firm berries with very good flavor on vigorous and productive short canes. Very early for an everbearing red raspberry variety. Ripens in late August or early September in northern districts and has performed very well in our Fedco trials.
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. (bare-root canes)
