 The King of Raspberries

Are succulent raspberries picked fresh from the vine limited to people with country estates or acres of farmland? Absolutely not! You can fulfill your own dream of stepping into the backyard and picking juicy, ripe raspberries for yourself when you plant a few vines of Royalty Raspberry.

Royalty Raspberry is a strong grower, suitable for backyards across most of the country. It is a healthy cross between a purple raspberry and a red raspberry and has the best qualities of both. It has the large fruit size and vigor of the purple hybrid and the high quality fresh-eating flavor of the red.

Royalty ripens in mid-July with huge amounts of fruit on established vines. You’ll have plenty to share with neighbors (and the neighborhood birds if you don’t get to them first!). The vines are impressively disease resistant and super-hardy. They have even been grown successfully in cities as high as 7,000 feet. (We’re looking at you Denver and Santa Fe!) Just give them plenty of summer water, a winter blanket of mulch and some winter wind protection and they should perform like the legends they are.

The fruit is perfect for eating fresh, making jams or pies and freezing for later. Order at least two for pollination, but the more you order the more fruit you’ll have. They’re fast-sellers at your local farmer’s market, too. Order yours soon!
