  Raspberry: A raspberry is actually a cluster of up to 100 drupelets, each with a juciy pulp and a central seed. The skin of each piece is smooth and fragile and if pushed too hard, the fragment will burst. Unlike most berries, the core of this fruit is hollow. Flowers are very attractive to pollinators benefiting your other plants. Plants themselves are bushes that have long and flexible stems called canes. Both canes and individual branchlets have thorns, so care should be taken when pruning or harvesting the fruit. When ripe, the berries come off the receptacle very easily.

If you are unable to plant immediately, refrigerate and plant as soon as possible. Do not add water. Keep in original packing to retain proper moisture.

Raspberries are highly affected by water conditions. To continue getting a good yield and size of berries, keep the bushes well irrigated in dry times, watering in the evening. After pruning, you can use the hard dried raspberry bush canes as kindling for your fireplace or campfire. Just make sure they're fully dried inside.

Raspberries rank near the top of all fruits for antioxidant strength, particularly due to their dense contents of ellagic acid (from ellagotannins), quercetin, gallic acid, anthocyanins, cyanidins, pelargonidins, catechins, kaempferol and salicylic acid. Yellow raspberries and others with pale-colored fruits are lower in anthocyanins.

Besides using the berries in jams and jellies, they can also be used in syrups to flavor dairy concoctions. Leaves can be used fresh or dried in medicinal teas.

Everberring Red Heritage - For many years, Heritage has been the standard variety for production and high-quality fruit by which all fall-bearing varieties were judged. The fall crop is highly productive and ripens from the end of August through October. The berries have good size, color and flavor. The fruit is also good for jam and freezing and delicious for fresh use, too. Heritage is a widely adapted - a very reliable choice for the home garden.

Everberring Yellow - Anne - Anne is a large-fruited fall bearer that ripens at the same time as Heritage. Fruit holds a pale yellow color - and is proving to be highly productive. Anne's excellent size (up to a 3/4 - 1" tall berry), appearance, and very sweet flavor make it an excellent choice for a yellow fall bearer. We strongly suggest supporting the plants by a trellis.
