Red raspberries, botanical name Rubus idaeus, are native to Europe and North America and are based on two main varieties. Rubus idaeus can vary from being an erect bush to sprawling and even spreading. Many raspberry varieties are thorny with biennial stems that, if left unkempt, can form heavy thickets. A versatile plant, raspberries are found in many different locations, such as streambeds to woodlands. Raspberry plants are known and grown for fruits and are not ordinarily ornamental in nature.
How to use Caroline Red Raspberry in the landscape?
An oldie but goodie, Caroline Red Raspberry has been the favorite of gardeners for many years. A high-yield producer, this thorny raspberry will be providing you with berries throughout late summer. Although not a long-lasting producer, you will still be able to enjoy fresh berries for around eight weeks. Compared to Heritage, Caroline is a more tolerant raspberry variant of root rot which can occur when the soil that the raspberry is planted in becomes too wet.
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Caroline Red Raspberry
Raspberries thrive best in soil with mildly acidic conditions that are rich in organics, moist, and well-draining. Full sun is best; however, raspberries do tolerate part shade; fruit crops may be less plentiful when plants are exposed to shade. Canes that have fruited should be pruned back and removed; new canes will grow back and produce fruit. Suckers may develop roots if not pruned back to prevent further growth. Raspberries are self-fertile and do not require another variety to cross-pollinate.
