The Largest and Sweetest Raspberries
Why Caroline Raspberry Bushes?
The Caroline Raspberry is a new raspberry cultivar that was bred to have larger raspberries with stronger resistance to diseases, and the results are amazing. This raspberry fights off common diseases like root rot with ease while producing two abundant harvests of huge raspberries every season.
Even better? Caroline Raspberries are sweeter than the raspberries found in local grocery stores. They’re quickly becoming the top choice for baking into pies, jams and more. And with Caroline Raspberries harvests in the early and late summer, you’ll never run out of berries.
And because it's drought-tolerant and heat resistant, the Caroline Raspberry will continue to thrive without constant care, especially since it’s cold hardy down to -20 degrees. Even the coldest and snowiest winters don’t stop the Caroline Raspberry from supplying you with tons of enormous raspberries.

Great overall!... can’t wait till next spring
berries for days!
this berry plant is awesome. it fruits in the spring and the fall. i pick berries almost daily during the fruiting season and they are eaten immediately.
Seems as though they'll make it through the winter thankfully. We had some at another home and they spread like wild flower. Hope these do! Thanks!
While I have enjoyed all my previous orders--lemon tree max strawberry heritige rasp and other carolines. The latest item came in a bit tatered-- many leaves wrinkled brown and rolled up. BUT I believe this is more of being in transit. I feel the plants will rebound.
Perfect condition! Beautiful plant!
I was amazed at the excellent condition of my plant when it arrived! I have never had one arrive in such pristine condition! There are even berries already on the plant. Can't wait to see how well it grows and produces. Will buy more!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location that offers full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and gives the Raspberries good air circulation. Areas that encounter high winds can pose a threat to the canes and should be avoided. Also, the soil should be nutrient-dense and well-draining.
If possible, plant your Raspberries early in the spring. If you live in a warmer area of the country, plant in late winter.
Dig a hole that provides enough room for the roots to spread out. For multiple plants, space Raspberries about 3 feet apart, in rows 8 feet apart. A trellis or a fence can provide extra support for growth if needed.
2. Watering: Water your Raspberry Plant weekly - if you're not sure when and how much to water, simply check your surrounding soil. If the surrounding soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your plant.
3. Fertilizing: You can use compost with a small amount of balanced organic fertilizer, applying late in the winter. It’s also a good idea to spread mulch in the planting area to maintain moisture and discourage weed growth.
4. Pruning: Prune Raspberries in the fall, leaving about 6 of the thickest, strongest green canes. Make sure you cut off any sideways-growing canes.
FGT Tip: If you don’t want to trellis your Raspberries, just let them grow in a slightly arched position so they have ample room as the fruit ripens.
