Pick Large Amounts of Delicious Raspberries from a Giant Bush.

Here's the problem with raspberries... they grow on long, skinny canes that need to be supported on trellises and spaced out in order to get a decent crop. They have thorns that make them tough to pick and some varieties make you wait an entire extra year because they can only produce on mature canes.

The Brazelberry Raspberry Shortcake solves all these problems. It grows in a dense bush form that can give you more fruit than a small row of lanky canes. It thrives in a container or the ground, producing fruit on thick new growth. You get a great crop year after year without the work or hassle.

This is an exceptional tasting raspberry. It's full sized with a great texture. They named it "shortcake" because of how sweet it is. Around July, your bushes start to look like small fruit factories... pumping out bright red berries against that lush green backdrop. You can pick for weeks and never have to worry about thorns.

Your bush grows about 3 ft. tall. Ideal for a back deck, where you can walk out each morning and pick fresh raspberries for your breakfast. The larger your container, the larger your plant will grow. But if you really want to get creative... this is a bright looking shrub. Plant them on each side of your front entrance or even as a foundation hedge. In the fall you will start seeing your leaves turning autumn colors. Plant several for a hedge that will give you enough berries to freeze throughout the year as well as share with friends and family.

This is a real problem solver that you will see more of in a few years. We are one of a few nurseries that are able to offer the Raspberry Shortcake. Your bushes will arrive with a well developed root mass and cane structure that is ready to explode with new growth. These large sizes will likely sell out quickly for the year. We suggest you order while they are still available.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake Bush can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake Bush


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake Bush.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake Bush gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake Bush again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I ordered two of these beautiful, compact, little bushes. There's no berries yet, but they are great looking plants all the same. What an awesome addition to any patio or garden.

I live in zone 4, if I put the raspberry shortcake in a pot, how do I take care of this plant in winter when I bring it inside?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: First of all let me say we live in Zone 6 and planted our two Brazelberry Raspberry Shortcakes in the ground. We fertilized them when we planted them. Our bushes haven't produced any fruit yet. We had a colder than normal winter here and a very late spring. Now we have been having a lot of rain. The bushes are growing well now, but still not over 1-2 ft tall. I can suggest for you to keep your bushes indoors late in the fall and winter and feed monthly. They also should have indirect lighting. Good Luck!
