  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide well drained, neutral soil. Feed with a balanced fertilizer in early spring, repeat in summer. Fruit is produced on second year canes. Just after harvest, prune out only the canes that have fruited. Leave the new canes that have sprouted during the growing season to overwinter and produce next year's fruit. In late spring, prune only to remove old canes with no new growth.
