Planting Pros Recommend:

Exceptional everbearing Caroline Red Raspberry (Rubus idaeus 'Caroline') produces plenty of flavorful, large, conic berries to eat fresh or freeze for later. You'll love the feeling of being prepared...turn your harvest into jams, preserves, pies, cobblers and sauce. If you adore the rich, full flavor of raspberries, you've got to grow your own. No store-bought berry can hold a candle to those grown in your own soil and sunlight.

Spring starts with a flush of cheerful white blossoms that the bees and butterflies go nuts for! Then you'll enjoy watching the red fruits forming. Productive Caroline Red Raspberry plants are literally laden with fruit twice each year. The first crop in June is borne on last year's growth, the second in early fall from this year's growth.

The further south you live, the earlier your fall harvest will be. It ripens earlier than Heritage Raspberry and features a marvelously pronounced Raspberry taste. The textural leaves look gorgeous and add beautiful greenery all growing season long!

Planting and Application:

Raspberries have become increasingly popular for their nutritional and antioxidant properties. They are a rich source of vitamin C as well as being high in manganese and dietary fiber. Eat them for both taste and health...and grow Caroline for one of the best varieties available for your home.

Include these delectable treats in your kitchen garden or add a few rows in the veggie garden. These days, more people are including edible plants like Caroline Red Raspberry plants as a pretty backdrop in your perennial garden. The thorns are great deterrents, so feel free to use these as fruiting hedges and privacy fencing that you and the birds, and even those nosy neighbors can enjoy!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Displaying great disease resistance, the Caroline Red Raspberry is a hardy and adaptable variety that fends off root rot and yellow rust. It's self-fertile and can be grown across most of the United States. Grow Raspberry plants in full sun and well-drained soils with handfuls of organic matter. After the early summer crop is done being harvested, prune those spent fruiting canes out to the ground. Leave the young new canes to fruit a heavy crop in fall on the cane tips.

  • Full Sun
  • Everbearing - Prune Old Canes Off in Early Summer
  • Widely Adaptable Well-Drained Soil
  • Great Disease Resistance
  • Very Cold Tolerant - 200-300 Chill Hours
