Rubus idaeus

Raspberries are a "cane berry" like black berries but instead of producing long vines that must be trained up on an arbor, they grow as upright stalks that reach five or six feet in height.

'Heritage' produces delicious, bright red berries in the summer and fall.  One of the best tasting raspberries, Heritage is an everbearing variety and can be mowed in the fall and will produce abundant berries in late summer the following year without staking. 'Heritage' produces abundant crops, perfect for fresh eating and freezing.
