Rubus Raspberry ‘Heritage’

red raspberry heritage
Heritage is one of the most popular raspberry cultivars worldwide. It’s an upright, thorny shrub producing two crops on each cane; a smaller crop in early summer, followed by a heavy crop in the fall. Their spring rose-like white flowers produce an abundance of raspberries. They’re great eating fresh, freezing, canning and used as preservatives.

Height: 5′ -6′

Width: 3′ – 4′

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.
