Heritage Raspberry

Thrives almost anywhere

Heritage Raspberry will produce a continuous harvest of big bright juicy red berries. A modest crop will arrive in mid summer, and then heavy crop lasting from August till frost. The one year old canes will arrive ready for planting— they are excellent for the home grower. They will thrive in most soil types, and are hardy in very cold climates. Easy to maintain— simply mow the canes after frost and they'll grow back next year to bear extra-sweet juicy fruit. Resistant or tolerant to most, if not all, major raspberry diseases and self-pollinating. Hardy canes don't need staking. Enjoy tasty fresh raspberries from the garden, as well as canned or frozen.
