Early trials indicate that it may ripen earlier than Chester & is similar to Chester in winter hardiness. Triple Crown would be a good choice to help extend the blackberry season for home gardeners, bearing fruit 1 year after planting.

Raspberries


Red Raspberry, Caroline: Most productive ever bearing red raspberry Caroline has a larger berry than Heritage & is more productive, with a rich, full & intense flavor. It is a very vigorous variety, with more toler-ance for root rot. The farther south you grow it, the earlier it will ripen. Will not tolerate high heat or drought.

Red Raspberry, Encore: Fruit: velvety, flavorful and sweet berries. Mid to late-summer bearing. Prefers well-drained sites with plenty of sunlight. Disease resistant to root rot. Cold-hardy and heat-tolerant. Plant averages 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide. Self-pollinating.

Red Raspberry, Prelude: summer bearing red raspberry is identified as the earliest ripening summer red raspberry, ripening in mid-June under N.Y. conditions. Although Prelude is also fall-bearing, it produces the biggest portion of its crop in the spring. Very winter hardy & vigorous, Prelude berries are round-conic, with very good flavor. An excellent choice when early fruit and quality are required, bears fruit 1 year after planting.
