Medium-size, tart, juicy, rose-red raspberries with small seeds. Excellent fresh, frozen and in preserves and pies. Good for cold climates with cool summers. Self-fertile. Acidic to slightly basic soil and adapts to a wide range of soil types. 2' tall, 2' wide. Shipped as 1-year-old, #1 bareroot canes 6-12 inches tall. (zones 3–7)
Planting instructions: These raspberries prefer a deep, well-drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit on first-year wood. Space 30 inches in a row with 8'-10' between rows. Create a simple T trellis at about knee height with a top 1 1/2 feet wide to support the canes. This can be made using rebar or wood, with twine or wire strung down each side of the row. They thrive in most soil types. Your plants require 1 inch of water per week during the growing season and regular, shallow cultivation.

Rate of growth refers to the vertical increase in growth unless specified differently. Rate, as is true for size, is influenced by numerous variables such as soil, drainage, water, fertility, light, exposure, ad infinitum. The designation slow means the plant grows 12” or less per year; medium refers to 13 to 24” of growth per year; and fast to 25” or greater.Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, by Michael Dirr.
