Rubus Heritage Raspberry

Rubus idaeus var. strigosus 'Heritage'

SKU
07004
The classic Heritage is the best fall crop selection! This ever-bearing vine produces a moderate summer crop, followed by an abundant fall harvest of sweet berries. Unlike some, the fruit will not fall to pieces if picking is delayed a day or two; it stays firm and juicy. Excellent flavor for eating fresh or in jams. Deciduous.

Provide fertile, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. After harvest, prune to ground older canes that have fruited, leaving one-year-old canes to produce next season's crop. Train newer canes on trellis. May be lightly tip-pruned and fertilized in spring.
