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.

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

Customer Reviews & Photos

When I initially ordered my raspberries they came to me very sad. I ordered two, one plant looked like it had pests eat most of the leaves while the other was much, much, smaller than I expected with the same issues. Which I found surprising since they sell neem oil as a pest control... Fast Growing Trees sent me new happy raspberry bushes after I shared my concerns. They sent it to me right away, and the new bushes looked gorgeous. I've planted all of them and they are doing great! I think the Root fertilizer (a worth it add on) really helped it get quick growth. While I won't have any berries this year, they look healthy and happy! I'm excited for next year when I'll be able to enjoy fresh raspberries. While the ones they sent me initially was disappointing, they made up for it in a huge way. I would totally order from them again!
We're so sorry to hear how about the condition your initial plants arrived in but so glad that we were given the opportunity to make it right!
WHEN THE 5 PLANTS ARRIVED ONE OF THE PLANTS WAS DAMAGED I TRIED TO PLANT IT BUT IT DIED. THE OTHER FOUR PLANTS ARE DOING GOOD
We are so sorry to hear this! If you haven’t already done so, please forward us some photos. We’re happy to take a look and help!
While I won't know for a while if the fruit from this plant is going to be good, I would like to take this opportunity to commend your business on the great quality of all the plants I ordered this year. They all arrived in great condition, the prices were better than another company I ordered from, as well as the quality of the plants. I have and will continue to recommend you to others.
In perfect shape so far . Came securely packaged. I planted same day and looks good after 2+ weeks. Would buy from again for sure!
I have planted it. Time will tell.
