Raspberries are the quintessential berry plant to add to your home landscape. They produce prolific, sweet berries and are easy to grow. The great thing about growing raspberries is that you practically can’t kill them. If you are not a serious gardener or want a plant that can produce delicious fruit with minimal work, raspberries are for you. The biggest challenge with raspberries is keeping them from taking over your yard and your kids from eating all of them?!!?

Caroline: Ripens in mid to late August, a week earlier than Heritage and Anne. Has large berries, and a rich, full raspberry flavor. Has vigorous canes and will spread quickly to fill the planting area if gets established well.
Heritage: The berries are brilliant red and delicious. The fruit freezes really well and is good for jam too. The plants are extremely hardy and highly productive. Ripens from the end of August through late September at the same time as Anne.
Anne: Our favorite yellow raspberry. The fruit is large, sweet, and firm. It has a unique flavor with hints of apricot. Ripens from the end of August through October at about the same time as Heritage. As the temperatures cool in fall the fruit gets even sweeter!
