The Hottest New Plant Introduction in 2013

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.

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.

This is the first winter on them. I hope they perk up, come spring time and start growing. They were not in very good shape when they got here.

i purchased two bushes and they arrived very healthy and quite a good size. I have one of these already, and it is a vigorous grower in a pot. It's a great producer and the berries are delicious.

The plant came. This was the first time I have ever order plants or trees on line. Like the way fast-growing-trees talked about the roots systems being so abundant and health. They we right. The raspberry bush has taken to it's pot and has berries on it all ready! Can't wait to tast them. Every happy.

Making the Comeback
I ordered two initially, then one more later. All three were packaged horribly (unusually so) with dead rotting leaves and broken branches. They looked like they were not going to make it, so bad in fact, not a good leaf on them. I transplanted them and kept them watered well, within a couple months the worst looking one was the biggest, green bushy strong & healthy. That's why I bought a third. The old branches are the only ones baring fruit for now, but I'm not worried. Love them

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

I'm living in a retirement center in Yukon OK (near Oklahoma City), and I have a "cottage" with a nice back yard that I keep fiddling with. I planted three Cumberland black raspberries I purchased from "Fast-Growing Trees" in early spring of 2016. They're doing quite well, and even have produced some raspberries already. So I'm going to try this bush berry....now I'll have to purchase a large container to put it in. Wheeeee!!!

got tired of fighting with standard raspberries and ripped them up a few years ago, missed berries, saw a magazine article about this plant and decided to try it.

Do I have to bring my pot in could I just cover it ?
Bev C on Sep 26, 2014
Best Answer: I live in zone 6a and have mine in a pot. I do not cover it in the winter or bring it in and it is growing well. In fact looks like a banner harvest this year. I have separated it into 4 plants over two years and all doing well. When I first got it in the mail, I thought it was dead but planted it anyway. It is now 4 lovely plants. I would have more fruit this year but was energetic last fall and pruned two of them. What was I thinking??? Berries grow on last years vines! At least it was only two ??

do I have to have two to polinate ?
Bob D on Apr 28, 2015
Best Answer: You do not need another bush to pollinate, however, berries do work best in three's and will be more prolific.

Is this plant Gogi plant winter hardy in Ontario Canada? We just bought this plant October 2014.
There are no growing or care instructions with it.

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!

How big was this plant when it arrived? Is it just the cane or is it more established when shipped?

Mine is producing fruit, but the canes are growing sideways and down (drooping to the ground). Does not seem right for this bush. Any ideas? I have tried a tomato cage, but they really do not like it at all.
Scott C on May 18, 2016
Best Answer: I haven't had that problem but we have separated it into 4 bushes over the two years. The harvest on the original bush looks to be wonderful this year.

Something is eating my leaves. They look like lace and the plant is dying. What could be doing this?
Dana P on Aug 9, 2014
Best Answer: Sounds like you have Japanese beetles!!! These bugs love raspberry bushes, basil plants and a lot of other plants. Check out the internet. We had these really bad a few summers ago and had to put out traps to lure them. If you find just a few on your plants, you can pick them off and put them into a container with dish soap and water to kill them. These beetles are kind of pretty and are large enough to see and handle. Good luck.

Can blueberry and raspberry plants be cross pollinated, or do you need to buy two of each?
Peggy T on Jul 11, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Peggy
The rule of thumb is that you buy at least 3 or more of each type of fruit to ensure proper pollination.

I planted mine in containers and they look like they are dying from the soil level up. What kind of soil is best? They are in a well draining mixture...pine bark, perlite, peat moss.
Jennifer P on Aug 20, 2014
Best Answer: You might try to take out the pine bark and some of the peat moss. You need to have more "dirt" in the pot. Add compost to some of the peat moss. The mixture you are using may be too dry and not holding water. Also you need to feed these bushes monthly. Check with a local greenhouse for the correct one to feed raspberries. Also the pot size should be big enough so the roots have room to grow. As these brazelberries are in a pot, make sure to water enough but not over-water them. Hope this helps!
