Good for fresh eating, canning, freezing, jam, juice and pie. Strong, vigorous, heavily productive, upright, 4-5’ plants; widely adapted. Disease resistant; mosaic free. Ripens evenly for three weeks in late June and early July. Exceptionally hardy; zone 3-8.
The Latham 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.
