Red Raspberry- Rubus Idaeus. Red Raspberry bushes, perennials, are easy to grow and can bear fruit for many years.

Although initially grown in colder climates, within hardiness zones 4 through 8, some varieties can thrive in warmer climates, hardiness zones 9 and above. These should be planted in a full sun area, which is identified as an area that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight during the growing season. These bushes require well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter. These plants do not do well when standing in water. Red Raspberry bushes can be planted as bare-root plants or as potted plants. Plant Red Raspberry plants 2 to 3 feet apart from each other; some plants may require some support, such as a trellis or fence to ensure optimal growth.

They will begin to produce fruit in the second season.

Mulching should occur throughout the season to protect against weeds and to maintain moisture, and regular watering is essential. Pruning is required annually to allow for new fruit-bearing branches to grow every year. These plants have a mature height of 36 to 60”. Depending on the type of Red Raspberry plant, the growth rate can either be summer-fruiting raspberries, which produce one crop per summer season and ever-bearing raspberries, which can provide a crop during fall and summer. They produce fruit for about six weeks. Raspberry plants should live 8 to 10 years with maintenance and will give an average of 1 to 2 quarts of raspberries per plant. It is essential to be aware of possible issues caused by spider mites, Japanese beetles, rabbits, Powdery Mildew and Cane Borers. In areas with rabbit populations, chicken wire can help to protect the plant.
