Zone 5

One of the best early-season raspberries for the north. Fruits are sweet and easy-to-pick. This variety is fast-growing, sturdy, productive, cold-hardy and produces a second crop in fall. Self-pollinating. (No pollinator is required however planting with other raspberry varieties can increase crop size.

Plant in full sun for optimal berry production. Water regularly the first year, especially in hot, dry weather. Raspberries thrive in well-drained, acidic soil. Use of soil ammendments and an acidic fertilizer is recommended. Regular spraying to control pests and disease is recommended. (For specific spray applications see product label).

For soil amending we recommend Mahoney’s Compost Planting Mix, Coast of Maine Penobscot Blend, and Happy Frog Soil Conditioner. For fertilizer we recommend using Espoma Berry-tone or Espoma Holly-tone. For insect and disease control we recommend Bonide Citrus, Fruit, & Nut - Orchard Spray and Bonide Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew.
