This variety is an 'ever bearing' raspberry which means it bears two crops - one in summer and one in autumn. The early summer crop is moderate and is followed by the heavy crop from autumn to early winter. The fruit is juicy, with an extra-sweet flavor, and are dark red, firm and large. These berries are great canned, frozen or fresh. This raspberry shrub is self-fertile, but planting more than one increase yield and ensures a better crop. Heritage is a highly popular variety for home gardeners.
