Raspberry 'Latham'


Most popular raspberry noted for its exceptional June crop. Large red berries are firm and very flavorful; very vigorous. Excellent producer; cut back canes after fruiting.

  •  June-bearing
  •  Large red fruit; very hardy
  •  Fruit appears in early summer and early fall

There are 2 types of Raspberries- summer bearing, which produce fruit in summer and ever-bearing, which produce fruit in the fall as well as summer.

The first year after planting, all the flowers should be removed to allow the plant to build up reserves. From the second year on, the plants will flower in the spring and the Raspberries will ripen in the summer. Raspberry plants need adequate water and fertilizer in the spring and summer, but quantities should be decreased in fall to harden the canes for winter. In the winter the old flowered canes should be pruned to ground level.

They will do just fine and produce an abundance of fruit all by itself, making it the perfect raspberry for the gardener just getting into produce growing.
