The Heritage Raspberry produces large, sweet, dark red berries with a mild flavor. This superior quality berry is good for fresh eating, freezing, canning, and preserves. The canes are tall for an everbearing raspberry, but are very sturdy and seldom require support. It is strong, vigorous and very productive. It suckers prolifically and spreads rapidly. The Heritage is fairly tolerant of heavier soils but will develop Root Rot in poorly drained areas. It has a moderate summer crop with heavier, superior fall crop. Hardy in zones 4-9.
The Heritage can be planted in almost any sort of well-drained soil. Raspberries should be planted spaced 2-3 feet apart with 6'-8' feet between the rows. Plant raspberries about one inch deeper than the plant grew in the nursery container. They can can also be pruned back at this time, too. Late Fall through early Spring they can be pruned back to 1' or shorter. Other times of the year just a small pruning back will help them root in and fill out.
