heritage raspberry bushesPosted by sam on Wednesday, October 3, 2001 7:41 PM ADT
I planted several heritage raspberry canes in June. I want some help regarding how and when to prune the canes that have grown over the summer - some canes have developed fruit.

Heritage are called ever-bearing, which means they bear twice before the cane dies. Normally, a cane of Heritage type will bear at the top of the cane in the fall the first year. Then, you cut off the top portion, and the cane will bear the next spring all along the cane and then die. At this point, you cut the cane off down by the roots. New canes coming from the roots will go through the process of bearing at the top the first season, etc.
raspberry bushes with no thorns?Posted by Don Schaafsma on Friday, May 30, 2008 8:16 PM ADT
I heard there is a bush with no thorns. Could some one point me in the right direction? I live in eastern Ontario.

I planted several Heritage raspberry canes in the spring of 2007. It has never borne any fruit, yet it comes back every year and seems to be spreading. I live in Calgary and have been pruning it back to about 6 inches each spring. Should I just give up or can you suggest an alternative for my zone.

re: posting by Jamie Don't prune them back to the ground like that. Read the posting near the top.... the fall crop (when most of the berries appear) grow on the canes from the previous year. If you're cutting down all of the canes (as my grandfather kept trying to do to mine) you're cutting off the older stalks which will bear your fruit!
