Raspberry, Canby

Rubus idaeus 'Canby Red'

Thornless - the only red thornless raspberry. Large to very large fruit are firm, juicy and flavorful. Strong canes support heavy summer crops. Plant near a fence or wall for support or allow to ramble. 

Ideal for freezing, canning, cooking, and fresh eating.   

For best growth and fruit production, plant in mildly acidic, well-drained soil.  In hot summer regions, shelter from harsh sun, and mulch to keep roots cool. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Feed in early spring. After harvest, prune away canes that have fruited. Leave newer canes to produce next season's crop; train on trellis.

Viroid and aphid resistant. Very winter hardy, grows best in cooler summer areas. Harvest June, July. Self-fruitful, best in zones 4-9.
