Willamette Raspberry

These Berries Are Bursting with Juice!

For the juiciest raspberries of the season, look toward Willamette! This vigorous, high-yielding variety bears lots of medium-size, dark red berries in midsummer that are literally dripping with juice as they come off the cane. Perfect for juicing and freezing for later, the sweet, delicious raspberries are also enjoyed fresh from the garden. Create a luscious jewel-toned sauce that can be drizzled over vanilla ice cream or a rich chocolate. Makes great smoothies, too! Upright canes grow 6-10 ft. tall with a 4-8 ft. spread. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8.
  • Zone 4-8
  • Height 6-10 ft.
  • Light Required Full sun.

  • Pruning: In early Spring before new growth begins, cut the old canes as low to the ground as possible to encourage buds to break from below the soil surface. Remove and discard the canes. Obviously, this approach cannot be performed with Summer-bearing red raspberry cultivars that bear fruit on second-year canes.
