An everbearing raspberry bush with the largest, sweetest berries.

Prepare yourself for large amounts of raspberries because the Dormans Red Raspberry is everbearing. These shrubs have two main harvests in the early summer and the fall, meaning they continuously pump out tons of berries all season long.

With this raspberry bush, you'll have buckets of berries all summer long, up until the first frost. It's a good thing the Dormans Red Raspberry produces fruit for months, because once you try one you'll be hooked on their sweet flavor and firm texture.

Pick fresh berries in your yard daily and add them to your favorite recipes. These large, juicy berries are perfect for topping oatmeal and yogurt. Also, they're sensational for adding to smoothies. Best of all, these plump berries make for the ultimate snack to eat fresh as soon as they're picked. Their sweet juices are exceptionally refreshing during hot summer afternoons.

You'll save time and money by picking your own raspberries, because you'll get them from your back yard instead of having to drive to your local supermarket, where raspberries are often overpriced.

Dorman's Red Raspberry bushes are both cold hardy, and heat tolerant, they can handle the frost up north and the heat and humidity down south. These vigorous shrubs thrive in the hot and humid climates that trouble other raspberry varieties.

This low maintenance fruiting shrub doesn't need a trellis in order to grow, because they grow in an upright position. Their upright nature makes them the perfect choice for hedges, and their ability to grow in containers allows them to enhance porches and patios with their beauty. Large bright red Raspberries pop against lush green leaves for a breath taking summer color show.

Everyone is trying to get their hands on these delicious raspberries and they are selling out fast. Get yours before they're gone.

Dorman Red Raspberry Pollination

Dorman Red Raspberry are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Dorman Red Raspberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Dorman Red Raspberry

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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 Dorman Red 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 Dorman Red Raspberry again after the transplant is complete.

I want a red raspberry BUSH rather than CANE type berries since it will take up limited space in my backyard garden. The description of the berries sound like they will be just what I wanted.

Because it was an ever bearing raspberry and at this time I couldn't get Heritage. But I'm looking forward to this one and to possibly get the heritage next year.

I've always heard that red and black raspberries must not be planted too close together. Is this still true, and if so, how close can they be planted without damaging either variety?
Storyspinning on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've never heard that before. I have a blackberry and a red raspberry planted within 7 feet of each other. I would think it depends on weather your going to let them grow wild or manage them. I would not let any berry plant go wild or your asking for trouble. I grow mine in a very small area in a large planter. Now if you live on a 10 acre plot you can let them go crazy I guess. I even plant trees right next to each other. I have an avocado tree and a paramagnet tree brushing up next to each other. I do a lot of trimming to control them. The red raspberry I got from Fast-Growing Trees is so beautiful. I was surprised how quickly it started putting out new shoots. Can't wait till spring.
Does this raspberry plant have thorns?
Linda B on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They do not have thorns, however, they can be prickly.
anyone know how they do in Central Texas -- specifically, Axtell, TX (approx 12 miles east of Waco)? Thanks in advance for the help.
Tom G on Jan 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Please let me know how your plants are doing.
I live in Laredo, TX. I have 2 of them. They are bare sticks at this time. I am hoping they come back in Spring.
When they first arrived one looked bare with maybe 3 leaves. The other one had many leaves. They did not look healthy. I decided to give them a chance and see what they do by spring time. They are under warranty.

is it alright to transplant in the spring?
Naomi B on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is.
Can I grow in pots?
Sarah R on Aug 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can grow these in pots, however, they do prefer to be in the ground.
