The Heritage Red Raspberry is an edible fruit that has become a fall favorite. This fruiting plant is very drought resistant. The scientific name for this plant is Rebus Idaeus “Heritage.” Heritage Everbearing Raspberry is an easy favorite due to its deep flavor, firmness, and large sized fruit. It is easy to force it to production twice per year, and it will even produce its first year. The first, slim harvest starts in July and the second in September. Expect to have a heavy yield through the fall. These large firm berries are perfect as is and hold up exceptionally well in pies and canning. The hardy plant will do well even in colder zones where most other raspberry varieties will not grow well or at all. The self-supporting canes do well as a bramble ground cover or on a trellis or other vine support. The fruit that this plant makes can be transformed into the most delicious desserts or other dishes that the fall season has to offer. Make pies, jams, jellies or eat them raw, it does not matter!
