Why plant Heritage Ever-bearing Red Raspberry?

A sure sign of summer! Heritage Ever-bearing Red Raspberries is a staple in berry gardening for its luscious sweet flavor and double the berries! Harvesting in July and again in September for all your pie, jams, and frozen berry desires! This bountiful shrub grows up to five feet tall, is considered a vigorous hearty grower, and self-pollinating! You’ll be saying, “thank you berry much,” to this heritage grower for its years of homegrown plump raspberries!

Raspberries are known as wild-growing berry bushes that have a North American variety and a European variety. Heritage is based on the North American raspberry Rubus strigosus and was bred by researchers at the New York State Agricultural Experimental Station in New York. Dr. Daniel Ourecky and Dr. George Slate can be specifically credited for the breeding of Heritage. To this day, Heritage remains the best fall producer of raspberries available.

How to use Heritage Ever-bearing Red Raspberry in the landscape?

Watch your hands! Heritage, although fruitful, is a thorny shrub much like wild raspberries. Though thorny, that does not stop Heritage from producing double crops on each cane; that means double the yummy berries! However, berry crops are split: the first crop is in the fall, and the second occurs early the following summer. Before fruit production, Heritage puts on a nice flower show with clusters of white blooms that appear similar to roses.

Planting Zones

Hardiness Zone: 4-8

How To Plant Heritage Ever-bearing 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. Raspberries are self-fertile and do not require another variety to cross-pollinate.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

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.

How Does Shipping Work?

Size Small (AAA), Medium (A2A), and Large (AA) plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.
