Meeker Raspberry

The Flavor of This Berry is a Summertime Classic!

Raspberries of all varieties deliver a delicious blend of sweet and tart with every bite, but this delicious variety has that little something special… the flavor of summer! You'll enjoy incredibly heavy yields of delightfully juicy fruit over a long harvest season. The large, dark red berries have a classic raspberry flavor that is unmatched by many of the varieties available today. They make wonderful juices, and are ideal for jams or jellies. They freeze well, and can be thawed later to enjoy a little taste of summer in winter. Grows 4-6 ft. tall with an equal spread. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8.
I'm gardening elsewhere.
