Killarney is a super cold-hardy raspberry! It was bred in Manitoba, after all! It is also extremely robust in terms of diseases.
Bright red, medium sized berries ripen in early summer and bear for about five weeks. The are delicious eaten fresh, but are also yummy in jams and in baking.
Killarney raspberries are firm and transport well, making them an ideal choice for market gardeners and u-pick operators.
** To regenerate your raspberry patch, and to keep it under control, cut out last years fruiting canes and leave the new one year canes, after fall harvest. For ever-bearing varieties you can cut all canes back to 8 inches as they fruit on first year canes. We also recommend trimming/mowing the borders of the blackberry patch regularly to prevent unwanted runners.**
