Fall Planted Fruits
Fall is an ideal time to plant fruit plants. Plants will establish strong root systems and get a jump on spring growth.

    • Raspberries may be planted as bare root or potted plants.
    • Choose a well-drained, sunny location with no standing water. Prepare the soil before planting by mixing compost or other organic matter in with the soil. Work the soil deeply.
    • Space canes 3 feet apart in rows 6 feet apart. Dig each hole to twice the size of the root mass.
    • Plant black and purple varieties 100 feet away from red and yellow varieties.

    Planting Bare Root Plants:

    • Before planting, trim very long or broken roots.
    • Cut back top growth to 6 inches.
    • Set roots 1-3 inches deeper than formerly grown.
    • Back fill with loose soil. Gently press soil in around the root ball. Transplants need good root-to-soil contact. Do not press too hard because that can cause soil compaction and root damage.
    • Gently water around the root ball to settle the soil and drive out air pockets.
    • After planting be sure to mark the plants with plant labels so you know where they are and what varieties they are.
    • Mulch with 2-3 inches of compost of pine needles to retain moisture and prohibit weed growth.

    Planting Potted Plants:

    • Set the plant in the hole at the same depth as it was growing in the pot.
    • Backfill the hole and press firmly around the base of the planting.
    • Water deeply. The water will seal off any air pockets around the root ball.
    • After planting be sure to mark the plants with plant labels so you know where they are and what varieties they are. 
    • Mulch with 2-3 inches of compost of pine needles to retain moisture and prohibit weed growth.
    • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients. Control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.
    • Add mulch each year as needed.
    • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2" of rain per week during the growing season. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
    • In the spring, before leaves sprout, apply a granular fertilizer such as Garden-tone following the instructions on the label. Most new growth will come from the plant’s crown under the soil. Plants use a lot of energy in spring when growth begins, so do not let plants dry out.
    • Remove all wild brambles near cultivated varieties to prevent virus diseases.
    • Pruning Standard Raspberries:
      • Do not prune the first year EXCEPT to remove dead, damaged or diseased wood.
      • Each spring select 5 or 6 of the most vigorous new canes and cut them back to 30 inches tall. All other canes can be removed.
      • Remove and destroy canes immediately after they fruit in their second summer. They will not bear again.
      • Add a summer topping to encourage side shoots off the canes to the pruning done in early spring and after harvest.  Pinch back 3-4 inches off shoots up to 2 inches tall.
      • Pruning Everbearing Raspberries:
        • Do not prune the first year EXCEPT to remove dead, damaged or diseased wood.
        • Each spring select 5 or 6 of the most vigorous new canes and cut them back to 30 inches tall.  All other NEW canes can be removed.
        • Do not remove last year’s fruiting canes- they will fruit again in early summer. Pinch back 3-4 inches off their lateral branches.
        • Expect new canes to fruit in the fall of their first year and in early summer of their second year.
        • Remove and destroy old canes immediately after their second fruit in early summer of their second year.  They will not bear again.
    • Monitor for Pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area. Click here to find your local branch.
    • Cane fruits may need support to help prevent against wind damage and make for easier harvest. Tie canes to wire that is strung parallel between two posts at either end of the row. 
    • Raspberries ripen on the plant at different times through the season in summer. Berries ripen quickly and are highly perishable. Pick frequently and discard berries that have rotted on the canes to prevent diseases.
    • Hold the berry carefully between your thumb and forefinger and pull. Berries are ripe when they are easily pulled from the core without getting squashed. At their ripest and sweetest, berries are plump and turn the deepest color, depending on the color of the variety.
    • Expect to harvest at least twice a week.
    • Keep berries in a shallow container, around 3 berries deep. Quickly cool berries in a refrigerator after picking. Properly stored, berries can keep for 3-7 days
    • Raspberries may be frozen or used for preserves.

  • Raspberry, Favorite Collection is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from D.O.A. I ordered these raspberry plants last fall. All four of them arrived looking haggard and nearly dead. I contacted Burpee about the condition and received an email stating that it takes 6 days to transition to CA after an order is placed. I was sent a shipment email dated 16 days before receiving the plants. I would not have paid money for what I received. Fortunately, Burpee has a great customer satisfaction policy and refunded the cost of the plants immediately.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Survival Rate? Not a good survival rate here. Roughly 50%.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Way to Sample Everything This is a very great collection for anyone who wants to try a little bit of everything. Every raspberry is a very good and sweet berry. Plus with these berries you get berries for a good portion of summer and fall. In early summer ripens heritage. In early-mid summer ripens Killarney and Fall Gold. In mid-summer ripens Jewel. In late summer until frost ripens Killarney's second harvest and Fall Gold's second harvest. HIGHLY RECOMENDED. SURVIVAL RATE: 2/3 Killarney 3/3 Heritage 2/3 Jewel 1/3 Fall Gold

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great Every single cane sprouted, every sprout bore fruit. Since I was experienced with raspberries, when several of the sticks did not sprout I told my housemates to not assume the raspberries were bad...sure enough, springing from the roots I had new plants. On 10 out of the plants the "stick" is still there and the sprouts came from the bottom. Fallgold, in particular, sprouted as many as 5 plants per cane planted in the first season, and they are great. ...and killarney is one of the best raspberries I have ever tried.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unhealthy We've had raspberries for the past 30 years these are the worst I have ever dealt with. We bought this product two seasons ago followed the directions to the tee out of 20 plants 8 survived. Ordered replacements recieved 20 more plants only 5 survived and only 5 of the originals. The only ones that survived where the ever-bearing reds. The funny thing was over in another part of my garden the birds planted wild black berries I couldn't kill them if I tried.
