Product Details

Sets big, bright red berries on 1-year stems! Simply mow canes after frost— they'll grow back next year with extra-sweet, juicy fruit. Magical flavor whether fresh, canned or frozen. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8.

  • Zones: 4 - 8 (-20° F.)
  • Height: 5 - 6 foot upright canes.
  • Spacing: 3 - 4 feet.
  • Depth: Plant at the same depth as the nursery.
  • Spread: 4 - 5 feet.
  • Sun/Shade: Full sun.
  • Soil Preference: Tolerant of heavier soils, except poorly drained.
  • Pruning: Early Spring- benefits from a heavy trimming in early Spring while dormant. Unlike Summer-bearing raspberry cultivars that bear fruit on second-year shoots called floricanes, Heritage is an erect, "everbearing" red raspberry cultivar that produces fruit on the upper third of first-year canes, or primocanes, in late Summer and early Fall. If these canes are over-Wintered, they become floricanes and will bear a second crop on the lower two-thirds of the canes in early Summer. Consider cultivating Heritage for a single late-season crop, because the best quality fruits are produced on the primocanes. In addition, trellising will not be required and harvesting will be much easier. In early Spring before new growth begins, cut the old canes as low to the ground as possible to encourage buds to break from below the soil surface. Remove and discard the canes. Obviously, this approach cannot be performed with Summer-bearing red raspberry cultivars that bear fruit on second-year canes.
  • Pollinator: Self pollinating.
  • Yield: 1 - 2 quarts per plant.
  • Color: White blossoms.
  • Foliage: Compound leaves, mid green, pubescent foliage.
  • Blooms: All Summer.
  • Flowers: Open, single, rose-like flowers 5 - 10 to a cluster.
  • Fruit: Large, dark red berries.
  • Growth Rate: Fast once established, which takes approximately 3 - 5 weeks.

"I bought 6 canes in 2008 and planted them in early spring. I was very surprised to get berries that fall! I didn't mow them back, and they are full of berries and expanding. I hope in the next couple of years to have a long ""hedge"" along my back fence. Thankfully, the birds cannot seem to keep up with them and I get a nice share for myself."
