|Sun: Full Sun||Zone: 3|
Upright, open, hardy shrub that is a reliable producer of very nutritious fruit. Prickly, tall, woody stems and fuzzy, oval foliage with small, white spring blooms. Large, ruby-red berries with a sweet-tangy taste and firm texture. Fruit is excellent for fresh eating, freezing, baking, cooking, and jam. Fall bearing: ripens late August to late September. Suckering habit; space 3′ apart when planting several plants. Prefers rich, moist, well-drained soil. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or an all-purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. This variety is ‘primocane’ meaning it produces fruit on one year wood: every spring while shrub is still dormant, cut back entire plant to ensure fruit production for that season.
Available in select bareroot and potted sizes.
