Red Raspberry Bush

Red Raspberry Bush - Rubus idaeus. The Red Raspberry Bush produces clumps of plump berries in early to midsummer on shoots that grew during the previous season. It grows to full height in the first year and produces fruit during the second year. It is quite easy to grow and is best grown in organically rich, slightly acidic, moist but well-drained soil. It prefers full sun but can tolerate part shade. In areas of clay soil, the raspberry should be planted in raised beds. Yearly pruning is vital to stimulate new growth and reap a more significant, healthier crop.
