Reliable Raspberry Plants Are a Delight to Grow at Home
Raspberries are deciduous perennial fruit bushes that have biennial canes. The first year's canes are called Primocane and the second year's canes are Floricanes.
Most of the more than 200 types of raspberries bear a single, large crop of tasty fruit in summertime. But we also offer fall-bearing, or ever-bearing selections that provide two smaller crops each year.
You will also relish all the color options. Raspberries come in a spectrum of bold colors from black to orange and yellow — and all the shades of red you can imagine.
Summer-bearing varieties are also called Floricanes. This is because they fruit on second-year canes.
Boyne Raspberry is an early season summer-bearing selection. Hardy heirloom Latham Raspberry produces bright red berries in mid-season.
Soon after harvest, cut the old fruiting canes down to the ground and put them in your yard waste. Leave this year's new Primocanes standing over winter to fruit next year.
Ever-bearing Raspberries produce summer fruit on the top third of the primocanes. The following year, the bottom half of the floricanes will bear fruit in fall.
After the harvest is done, trim the portions of the canes that have borne fruit. Floricanes should be cut and removed at ground level after fall harvest.
Anne Raspberry is a sweet, kid-friendly yellow berry. Joan J is a thornless option with large, tasty red berries.
Trellis structures help your plants be more productive. Use either a two-wire trellis and tie each cane to it, or corral them canes in a productive hedgerow with a four-wire trellis.
You can also tip-prune young primocanes in early spring for more erect, compact fruit bushes. Please study the information on the product page of each cultivar for additional details.

Planting and Care Tips for Fruit Bushes
Fruit and berry bushes are hardy, easy to cultivate, resistant to disease and quick to yield. They typically need full sun, with at least six hours of direct sunlight a day.
Well-drained soil and good air circulation will keep your fruit bushes healthy. Pull your fruit bushes away from the side of your house. It's time to give these hard-working plants a place in prime time.
Always bundle away your edible plants yard waste in fall, and do not compost it. This is good hygiene and helps stop the spread of diseases.
Consistent water is important to support a bumper crop. Mulch to a depth of three inches, but don't let the mulch rest against the stems of the berry bushes.
Protect the fruits from birds with netting and flash tape. Don't let them get your hard-won crop from your fruiting plants.
Not only are fruit bushes a tasty pleasure for your patio or yard, but they make excellent gift plants for bakers and health fanatics.
Don't forget to check the product page for information on pollinators. You'll want to purchase a fruitful set to generate the greatest yield of your homegrown berries. Take a look at the wide range of fruit bushes for sale at our online nursery, then place your order today.
