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.
