Raspberries for the Home Garden

By H.Hughes, Colorado State University professor, and J.E. Ells, Coloado State University Cooperative Extension vegetable crops specialist and associate professor (retired).

Quick Facts

•Of all bramble fruits, only red and yellow raspberries are recommended for general cultivation in Colorado.

•Red raspberries grow well in most garden soils that are amply supplied with organic matter and adequately drained.

•Plant only true-to-name, disease-free stock.

•Twenty-five feet of row should produce 15 to 20 pounds of raspberries per year.

•Relocate a raspberry planting every eight to 10 years with new, clean stock.

For complete information see CSU Fact Sheet 7.001.
