Rubus ‘Latham’

Raspberry Latham
Raspberry Latham, also known as Summer Bearing Raspberry, sets berries mid-summer after their white rose like flowers give way. The fruit is medium size.

This variety comes from Minnesota and is exceptionally cold hardy (zones 3 – 8). It’s narrow spread of only 1 to 2 feet is perfect for containers and small gardens.

Height: 4′ -5′

Width: 1′ – 2′

Exposure: Full sun to partial shade (will produce less fruit).

Watering and soil: Moist, well drained organically rich soil. A slightly acidic mix is best. Do not let them get waterlogged.

Fertilizer: Use a well balanced fertilizer or slow release formula.

Pruning: Prune in summer after fruiting. Cut back about 1/3 and leave the rest of the canes for late summer fruiting. Then remove the canes to encourage the production of new ones. Remove suckers to control spread.
