Growing Fruits: Raspberries and other bramble crops

Abstract: Raspberries can be an enjoyable crop for the conscientious gardener. A well-maintained raspberry bed can provide fruit for 10 to 20 years. Red raspberries grow well throughout New England, but black and purple raspberries and blackberries lack the hardiness to be grown north of well-sheltered sites in southern Maine and New Hampshire. All together, these crops are known as “bramble crops”. In this fact sheet, we discuss all brambles, but focus on raspberry.
