  • Description

    Easy to pick! Firm berries provide durability during harvest. Adapts well to a range of soil types. Upright growth habit. Burgundy fall foliage adds landscape interest. Fruit is outstanding for fresh-eating, freezing, and canning.

    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.
