The King of Raspberries, Royalty Raspberry Bush (Rubus 'Royalty') 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 features the large fruit size and vigor of the purple hybrid and the high-quality fresh-eating flavor of these super dark-red to purple jewels.

Spring brings lovely white blossoms for the bees, and then Royalty's juicy berries ripen 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.

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.

Planting and Application:

These are easy and low-care plants for novice gardeners. The fruit is perfect for eating fresh, making jams or pies and freezing for later. Order at least two for increased harvest and pollination. They're fast-sellers at your local farmer's market, too!

These mid-sized shrubs are the perfect backdrop or border plant that has just enough thorns to deter anything thinking about crossing into your property! Plant along the back of your yard or in rows for linear, space-saving berry orchards and property division that birds are thankful to eat and nest in. Small enough to be a specimen or focal point plantings, any vegetable or kitchen garden can include one!

  • Large Dark Red/Purple Juicy Berries
  • Mid-July Harvest

#ProPlantTips for Care:
