Raspberry

Rubus idaeus 'Cumberland'

The shiny black raspberries should be picked and eaten or quickly refrigerated, since the shelf life is shorter in blacks than in red raspberries, the berries are early ripening in mid-season, and are medium in size.

1) Plant canes 3 feet apart creating hedgerows that are 6 feet apart. Dig a hole two times the width of the root ball in good loose garden soil with a pH of 5.8 to 6.5 amending if necessary.
2) Remove plant from packaging and lightly loosen the bottom of the root ball to release the roots as you set it in place in the hole.
3) Keep the top of the root ball even with soil surface and fill in around the roots. Lightly tamp dirt around your newly planted raspberry.
4) Water well and add additional soil if necessary and water again.
5) Keep weed-free, water when necessary and prune regularly to maintain a quality crop. Fertilizer may be applied in early spring before sprouting and again in late May.
