Raspberry, Fall Gold (2 PLANTS) SHIPS PROMPT
This is one fruit that has won the hearts of all the Baker Creek staff. With so many scrumptious fruit, we just couldn’t resist gleaning. Hotly debated around the Bakersville watering hole, it was decided that the golden raspberries taste even better than the red ones! These are super hardy, thriving in zones 3-9. The plants are ever-bearing and bear fruit only on first year wood; it is recommended to prune back canes that have finished fruiting, to make room for more fruiting canes. You will enjoy fruit all the way from June until October. Introduced 1967, by E.M. Meader of NH. No orders shipped outside of the USA. Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Please make sure you are ready for your order in your zone as these young, tender plants generally have no resistance to cold. No orders shipped outside of the USA.
Plant Care Instructions:
Plant in the early spring (or late winter for warm zones). Prepare soil with compost or aged manure a couple of weeks before planting. Raspberries love moisture, so try soaking the roots for an hour or two before planting. Dig a hole that is roomy enough for the roots to spread. Space plants about 3 feet apart, in rows 8 feet apart. After planting, cutback canes leaving 8 to 10 inches. Depending on the variety you plant,you may need to fashion a support. A trellis or fence are good options. WARNING: PLANTS ARE VERY YOUNG AND TENDER. DO NOT PUT THEM OUTSIDE UNTIL ALL DANGER OF FROST HAS PASSED.
