Heritage Raspberry plants are a newly developed berry bush, bred for:

• Huge, delicious berries
• A long season of fruiting
• Better disease and drought resistance

Flavorful raspberries of the highest quality can be grown right in your own backyard!

'Heritage' Raspberries are the most popular red raspberry plant on the market. A vigorous, hardy plant that thrives in most soil types, and even tolerates the coldest of climates.

A trouble-free berry bush... just plant, then pick for years to come. This award winning cultivar will provide you with a bountiful harvest beginning in June. High in antioxidants, these raspberries are so nutritious and flavorful.

These new raspberry bushes produce bushels of plump, juicy berries for months. You'll enjoy these delicious berries from June until winter... much longer than most berry bushes.

Great for small yards or tiny areas… these raspberry bushes only grow to 4 to 6 feet wide.

Heritage Raspberries are great for southern states because they are extremely drought tolerant once they reach maturity, but they can grow up north as well!

Expect huge raspberries wherever you plant them. And they aren't finicky like other berry bushes.

Plant them in full sun to get the best results for full, tasty fruit all summer and fall.

Don't wait! The sooner your 'Heritage' raspberries are planted, the sooner you'll be enjoying a plentiful supply of sun-ripened berries whenever you walk into your backyard!

It's Easy to Plant your Heritage Raspberry

Specific Directions for Heritage Raspberry

Place your heritage Raspberry Bush in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Heritage Raspberries prefer full sun, they can tolerate shade. Plant your Heritage Raspberry Bushes about three feet apart for a hedge. Make sure that your Heritage Raspberry Bushes don't sit in an area that gets hit by heavy winds.

Heritage Raspberry Bushes will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Your Heritage Raspberry will need one inch of water a week. Only give your bush extra water during times of drought. Fertilize your Heritage Raspberry early every Spring with a well balanced organic fertilizer like 10-10-10.

Every Spring your Heritage Raspberry will provide you with white blooms, and soon after Raspberries will emerge. You may see fruit all summer, but there are two main harvest times are in June and September. Check on your Heritage Raspberry Bush every few days during the summer. When your raspberries turn from green to red and are easily removed from their stems they're ripe and ready to be enjoyed.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Heritage Raspberry.

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 Heritage Raspberry 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 Heritage Raspberry 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.

The plant came very well packed like all other items ordered. I hope the Raspberry plant will survive the 80mph winds we had on May 31st. It's still upright but most of the leaves are brown and crackly. I'm hoping for the best.

I could not be more pleased with the result of the raspberries in the 1st year!! I picked so many raspberries the 1st year I lost count!! The kids loved them!! I'm anxious to see how they do over the winter, and what they will produce year 2!! Very happy I bought it!

When picking do I need to cut the stem off after all berries are picked?
Shirley N on Jul 20, 2014
Best Answer: No, after the harvest season is over cut the cane you picked berries off of down to the ground. Remember though that you may have two harvest from the same cane in one season. We get a second harvest and after the second harvest the cane is cut down.

how long it will take to produce fruit ?
khaled on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: didnt have too good of a success. it produced few berries (very tiny) first year, and the plant seemed to wither afterwards (despite good watering through the summer). by the end of the season, both plants were pretty much dead. this spring all that remained are the original tall dead branches (granted, we had the coldest winter on the record) although some green is starting to come out from the bottom, which means the roots are not dead and the plant is coming back, but it is like starting from scratch and reseting the time to wait for berries...

Can I plant these in the Fall?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2014
Best Answer: I bought two raspberry bushes in the fall two years ago, for probably the same reason as you. I had planted raspberries in the spring two different years (from different companies), and all of them were killed by the summer heat. It was very depressing. The two I bought from this company and planted in the fall are doing great, are still alive and have produced a lot of raspberries! I put mulch around them in the winter to protect them, as it gets very cold here in Missouri.

Can you plant raspberry bushes in the fall?
Marina F on Jul 16, 2014
Best Answer: I bought mine in the fall and I live in upstate ny where we had a very harsh winter last year. So I thought they were goners. In the Spring they looked frail, I also moved their location. They grew to be very healthy plants.

Do I need multiple plants for pollination?
Th4449 on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: No really sure, but this plant did not thrive at all. In fact it died soon after I received it. Although I did follow all the instructions.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
