Big crop the first year!
Reviewed By: Pearl (Hiawassee, GA)
I purchased plants last spring and expected to, hopefully, have berries this year. However, much to my surprise I got a bumper crop the first year. I absolutely love these raspberries, they produce a lot of large, beautiful, tasty berries, absolutely fantastic!

Comes back twice a year!
Reviewed By: Michelle Thompson (Binghamton, New York)
This raspberry is huge, bright red, and comes back twice every year. The canes have multiplied beyond my greatest expectations. Transplants easily, and for me, they bear fruit in part shade, though obviously these take longer to ripen than when planted in full sun.

Big harvests

I planted these 2 years ago. Last year, I got SO many raspberries, I had to call people over to pick and take some. I couldn't keep up, even with freezing them. I look forward to this years harvest!

Great Plants
Reviewed By: Chris (Beech Island, SC)
"Got three in the spring(2010), they were mere sticks upon receiving but they were 12"" tall with an 18"" spread by fall. They even produced a few berries. I did have one that did not grow but Gurneys is sending a replacement in the spring of 2011. I am well pleased with the plants and the service."

Delicious & Prolific
Reviewed By: Connie (Elgin, IL)
Planted just 6 canes two years ago. The fruits were extremely large and delicious. This year they send out so many suckers that they needed to be thinned and I was able to share with friends.

Raspberries
Reviewed By: Carolyn (Lecompton, Kansas)
I agree they need some soil around them. I ordered mine last year and not a one of them lived. I would like to try again because I like the mow off cane aspect, but don't know if I want to.

great
Reviewed By: jh (san jose, ca)
In my opinion i would think if gurneys would just add a little moist soil like the raspberries you see in home depot nurseries in spring these plants would have a jump start and would be better.its actually still good without any moist soils.i would plant it in the spring so you would have berries by November or before it.i live in zone 9 or 8 but really i had only 1 or 2 days of frost and the lowest temp was 28 degrees so its a great growing climate.

Endless berries
Reviewed By: Peggy Couey (Cookeville, TN)
Our organic gardens and orchards are very happy to have this Heritage berry. It produced the first eyar with 4 or 5 weeks of berries and then in September started again, and this morning (Nov 23) I still picked a few for breakfast.

They just won't stop
Reviewed By: M (Mason, Michigan)
I planted 6 Heritage Raspberry plants in spring 2008. The first season yield was small but tasty, but this year was incredible. They just won't stop! I have picked a quart every other day for 2 months now and, today I picked 3 quarts. I have maintained them with a hefty mulch of rich compost and organic, natural controls for the Japanese Beetles, that unfortunately love them as much as I do. When I think about what I would have had to pay for organic raspberries in the grocery store, these have paid for themselves 10x over!

Excellent First Year

Planted right away, and before fall started producing some berries the first year. If this keeps up by next year will have a nice crop. Very happy with this brand, can't beat two crops a year.

Success
Reviewed By: Paul (Iowa City, IA)
"I purchased a Heritage raspberry cane from another nursery, but when I opened the package the dormant cane looked more like a dead stick. I planted the ""dormant"" cane, but it still looks like a dead stick nearly two months later. In contrast, the three dormant canes I purchased from Gurneys arrived in good shape, and I had green leaves and blooms in no time. I am looking forward to the berries. "

Excellent Raspberry
Reviewed By: Malcolm Overton (Poseyville, Indiana)
I bought Heritage Raspberries two years ago and highly recommend it. It produced some the fall of the first year and is a very good producer with little care. The thorns are no real problem and the plants do not have to be trellised if you do not want to. It is my favorite raspberry variety and has proven itself. Heritage Raspberries freeze well and do not crumble very much at all.
