Collection: Cane Fruit (raspberries etc.)
Blackberries: (Rubus fruticosus)
In fertile soil with sun blackberries will grow, spread, and produce huge crops. Plants are thorny and vigorous. The berries are best by the handful right off the plant. Our plants are a hardy productive local strain. Crops may suffer following winter temperatures below -25 degrees. Give them plenty of space and let them loose.
Raspberries: (Rubus idaes) Raspberries are quick to start bearing (usually the year after planting) and highly productive. Plant raspberries now if you have not already. They sucker profusely, making it easy to expand a patch. Remove dead canes in the fall to keep the patch healthy.
Black Raspberries: (Rubus occidentalis) Often found growing wild along old stone walls or abandoned edges of the yard. Selected cultivars are far more productive with larger fruit. The canes grow wildly and need support. Awesome plant, awesome fruit.
