Raspberry - 'Heritage'
This heirloom variety was long considered the standard variety for production and high-quality fruit by which fall-bearing varieties were judged. Heritage is a highly popular variety for home gardeners. The fall crop is highly productive and ripens from the end of August through October, depending on your location. The berries have good size, color and flavor. The red fruit is good for jam and freezing and is delicious for fresh use, as well. Freezing quality is good, winter hardiness is excellent, fruit is medium-large and firm.
Best grown in zones 4 - 8. Preferred soil pH of 6.5 - 6.8 for raspberry plants. This fall bearing raspberry plant bears some fruit the first fall of planting year, and either summers or falls after that depending on how it is managed. Very easy to grow.
