Slow to start
Reviewed By: Gabe (Peninsula, Ohio)
These grow wild in the area, but the patches I used to frequent have died off. After receiving these in mid-April, I soaked them and planted them in temporary pots to encourage growth. It took over a month before I saw any results- in fact the canes had no growth, instead new canes sprouted directly from the roots. Once they sprouted, they took off- I had several inches of growth within the week.

No Growth
Reviewed By: Rachael P. (Hudson, MI)
I planted this raspberry over a month ago and it still doesn't have any growth on it. I'll probably end up buying something local instead.

I've seen them in the wild.
Reviewed By: Timothy (Cleveland, Ohio)
I've seen these raspberries near lake Erie and picked a few and was delighted by the flavor. These berries made the perfect pie and I was the envy of my family. I highly recommend these berries to the next person.
