The Story

Red raspberries, botanical name Rubus idaeus, are native to Europe and North America and are based on two main varieties. Rubus idaeus can vary from being an erect bush to sprawling and even spreading. Many raspberry varieties are thorny with biennial stems that, if left unkempt, can form heavy thickets. A versatile plant, raspberries are found in many different locations, such as streambeds to woodlands. Raspberry plants are known and grown for fruits and are not ordinarily ornamental in nature.

The Details

A jack of all trades berry, Latham Red Raspberry has much to offer in a small package. This versatile raspberry is a reliable and cold-hardy plant that provides flowers and bright berries to your landscape. A mid-season producer, Latham starts off sprouting rose-like white flowers that produce strikingly red berries. Latham berries are ideal for fresh eating, jams, and jellies. Since Latham is cold-hardy, this is an excellent choice for northern gardeners to add to their landscape; just be careful of the thorns.

How to Grow

Raspberries thrive best in soil with mildly acidic conditions that are rich in organics, moist, and well-draining. Full sun is best; however, raspberries do tolerate part shade; fruit crops may be less plentiful when plants are exposed to shade. Canes that have fruited should be pruned back and removed; new canes will grow back and produce fruit. Suckers may develop roots if not pruned back to prevent further growth. Raspberries are self-fertile and do not require another variety to cross-pollinate.
