Species and varieties:

Rubus caesius (Blackberry, Dewberry)
Rubus fruticosus (Blackberry, Dewberry)
Rubus hybrid(Brazos Blackberry, Black Raspberry)
Rubus idaeus (Tropical Raspberry, Heritage Red Raspberry)

Everbearing large, dark red raspberry. Mild flavor with superior quality for fresh eating, freezing, jams, and jellies. Raspberries perform best in full sun with plenty of water and a good fertilizing when blooms begin. They are generally thorny, although some cultivars are thornless. A slow warming spring, such as in the Pacific Northwest, is required for optimal flower and fruit production. Staking is also usually necessary. White flowers are borne from late April to June followed by the much anticipated red or sometimes yellow fruit which ripens in mid summer to fall. Fruit is produced on one year old wood. For best results, cut down all fruited canes to ground level at the end of the season. Cold hardy zones 4-9.
Rubus niveus, Rubus albescens (Mysore Raspberry, Ceylon Raspberry)
Unlike common raspberries from up North that can not tolerate tropical heat, Mysore Tropical Raspberry (Rubus albescens) grows very well in hot humid climates. It grows very fast into a scrambling shrub with flexible stems and tends to bloom and fruit throughout the year. The fruit is red when unripe and purple black when ripe, very juicy and sweet. The clusters contain as many as couple dozen fruit. It is also a very ornamental plant because it has almost white canes and the leaves are green above and whitish underneath. The plant is cold hardy to upper 20s F; young plants are more cold sensitive. Great to grow in large containers and will produce large amounts of fruit. Good drainage is essential for good growth.
Rubus odoratus (Purple-flowering Raspberry)
