Description / Rubus 'Royalty' Raspberry

Item Form: Bare Root

The most popular purple raspberry variety today 'Royalty' will become the queen of your garden. This purple summer bearing variety is one of the heaviest producers. Sweet light flavor producing outstanding jellies and jams for your kitchen and recipes. It combines the large fruit size and plant vigor of a purple hybrid with the high fruit quality of a red raspberry. 'Royalty' raspberry is hardy, has wide adaptation, and has good yield potential, plus it is delicious.

Raspberries like full sun and good air circulation. They do best in enriched garden soil that is moisture retentive but well drained. Plant about 3 feet apart in the row, or train up a trellis. Plant about 1 inch deep in heavy soils, 2 inches in loose, sandy soils. For best growth, cut back immediately after planting, to prevent the plant from setting fruit the first year. This will give you much stronger growth and better harvests in years to come. Water well during growth, and consider mulching to conserve water until the following spring, when the mulch should be removed to let the plants warm up. In winter, cut back to about 5 canes per crown.
