These deliciously large and easy to pick raspberries have a high yield! They are a perfect choice for northern gardens because they are hardy to minus 20F! They are self pollinating, sweet, and juicy: What more could you want in a raspberry?! These raspberries are large and have an outstanding taste. Vintage is firm and is easy to pick!

This shrub is very vigorous. 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.
