Heritage Everbearing Raspberry is a favorite for its flavor, firmness, and large fruit size. This bush has two harvest seasons with a moderate yield in July and heavy yield in September until frost. This rasberry spreads fast and produces a crop in the first year. Extra-sweet, juicy fruit that is good fresh, canned or frozen.

Planting instructions: These raspberries prefer a deep, well-drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit producing on first-year wood. Space 30" in a row with 8'-10' between rows. Create a simple T trellis at about knee height with a top 1 1/2 feet wide to support the canes. This can be made using rebar or wood with twine or wire strung down each side of the row They thrive in most soil types. Your plants require 1" of water per week during the growing season and regular, shallow cultivation.
Chill hours (CU) requirement: 250. (Chill hours are the average hours of air temperature between 32 and 45 degrees F in a typical winter season). For best fruit production, calculate the chill unit (CU) for your growing zone to be sure it aligns with the CU requirement of this tree.

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
