Raspberry plants prefer sun, mostly indirect if possible to avoid burning. If in a location where the temperatures are regularly in the 80’s, place the plant in part shade.
Water consistently each week during the growing season. Water only the soil, not the leaves. We recommend using Distilled, Reverse Osmosis, or Rainwater.
A moisture meter is a useful tool as Raspberry plants are often overwatered.
- Self-Pollinating. However, cross-pollination with another plant of the same variety or another blueberry plant that has the same growing season is recommended to produce larger crops.
- Everbearing Raspberry varieties produce fruit in the fall. Once the fruit has been harvested, prune back the plant for the winter.
- “Chill Hours” are when the temperature is between 32-45℉. The Raspberry bush needs to meet its minimum requirement of chill hours in order to produce fruit & leaves correctly. Most Raspberry varieties need at least 800 hour of chill hours during the winter.
- It is recommended to slowly acclimate your Raspberry plant to the new temperatures, wind, and sunlight that it may encounter.
