Originating from New Zealand, Raspberry Shortcake has an extensive history. A variety of Rubus idaeus, a European red raspberry, Raspberry Shortcake, has roots in Europe. In 1999, two plant breeders from New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research, Harvey Hall and Joseph Stephens, can be credited for creating this tasteful red raspberry. They carried out many controlled breedings and sent the resulting seeds to Washington, where raspberry growing was very popular. Out of the seedlings in Washington, one was found to be unique and credited with the name ‘NR7’. This plant was patented in 2011 under the name that we know as Raspberry Shortcake.

How to Grow
Raspberry Shortcake enjoys having a sunny spot where it can collect the sun's rays freely with no shade. Raspberries enjoy being planted in acidic soil, rich in organic matter, moist, and well-draining. Be sure not to plant raspberries in areas with wet, soggy soil; these berries do not enjoy having wet feet. If the landscape has clay soil, planting raspberries in raised beds would be a great option to enjoy growing your fruit. After fruiting, prune all canes that produced fruit. Thoroughly prune late winter to early spring to remove any damage occurring during dormancy.
