Raspberry Heritage - Summer & Autumn Fruiting

Raspberry Heritage

An ever-bearing raspberry giving an autumn crop and then a summer crop the following summer, Rubus idaeus Heritage is an upright, deciduous, rather thorny shrub with upright canes. The fruit is red, conical to globular and sweet. The typical raspberry leaves are deep green, turning yellow in autumn. Pretty white flowers, attractive to pollinators, are borne in spring. Self-fertile, you will get an autumn crop on the top third of the cane, and a crop the following summer on the lower two-thirds, so don’t cut the canes back in late winter; after the summer crop, cut back the canes. Alternatively, cut back the canes after the first hard frost to get a bigger crop in autumn.
