Rubus idaeus var. strigosus 'Heritage'
|Description||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.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Rapid-growing canes reach 5 to 8 ft. long.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Espalier|
|Design Ideas||Plant this tasty berry near a fence, wall or wherever you can provide plenty of support and room for its long, fruit-laden canes. Grow as a freestanding shrub in a large garden bed and stake canes. An ideal and delicious Raspberry to grow for two crops or--if all the canes are cut down in late winter--one, large late crop. Be the only one on your block with fresh raspberries in September!|
|Companion Plants||Salvia (Salvia); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Yarrow (Achillea); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Lavender (Lavandula)|
|Care||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.|
