  • Description

    Cold-hardy and reliable, Rubus idaeus 'Boyne' is an early season, upright, self-fruitful, thorny shrub with clusters of white, rose-like flowers which give way to medium-sized, sweet, flavorful, deep red raspberries in early summer. The berries are great for fresh eating, freezing, preserves, and pies. Developed in Canada, this raspberry shrub is perfect for northern gardens. Excellent disease resistance.

    Prune in summer immediately after fruiting. Cut back the tips of everbearers that fruited last fall (top 1/3 of canes), but leave the rest of the cane for summer fruiting. Remove the canes completely after they have fruited over their entire length to encourage the production of new canes. Promptly remove excess new plants and suckers to control spread.
