Heritage Red Raspberry
Heritage red raspberry is picked to be the favorite of this variety because of its sweet, ripe flavor. It can yield crops two different times of the year. Once in the summer and once in the fall until the heavy frost hits it. Growing these in bunches, clusters or groups will help ensure a healthier fuller crop. It is a self-fertile plant that can help pollinate itself versus needing a male or female to be grown near each other. It will help but is not necessary. They can grow to two feet per year as they are considered a fast growing fruit tree. These can grow to become up to five to six feet tall and also can grow and mature to around five feet. This shrub also grows one to two feet each year. They thrive when planted in full sunlight but can also tolerate partially shaded locations. They also are not very particular regarding soils and can tolerate almost any soil where they are planted. They are wonderful when planted in climate zones four through eight. These produce gorgeous red raspberries that are very delicious and have a very sweet taste to them. They are great to use in all types of recipes and can also create delicious jams and jellies to enjoy all throughout the year. When these shrubs are in bloom, they provide a beautiful look as the white flowers appear on them. Once the flower is gone, the berries start to grow during the late spring and summer months.
