Raspberry Plants - Red River
(Rubus idaeus 'Red River') Perennial. Zone 2b. Primocane. Everbearing. Few thorns.
Red River is one of the most cold hardy raspberries out there! It was bred specifically for the harsh prairie Winters experienced in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
Delicious, medium sized berries grow in abundance from short, 3 foot tall canes. Red River has fewer thorns than most raspberry varieties, making for easy picking.
Even in the coldest climates, Red River is a long-lived raspberry and can continue to bear fruit for close to ten years.
** To regenerate your raspberry patch, and to keep it under control, cut it down to about 8 inches tall, after the Fall harvest. We also recommend trimming/mowing the borders of the blackberry patch regularly to prevent unwanted runners.**
