Heritage Raspberries: A Delectable Delight for Home Gardeners

Heritage Raspberries, scientifically known as Rubus idaeus 'Heritage,' are a popular choice among raspberry enthusiasts and home gardeners. These delightful berries are celebrated for their exceptional taste, distinctive appearance, and unique characteristics that set them apart from other raspberry varieties.

Taste Sensation

One of the primary reasons gardeners choose Heritage Raspberries is their exceptional flavor. These berries are renowned for their sweet-tart taste, making them a delightful addition to a variety of culinary creations. The balance of sweetness and acidity in Heritage Raspberries makes them perfect for eating fresh, but they also shine in jams, jellies, desserts, and even savory dishes.

When you bite into a ripe Heritage Raspberry, you'll experience a burst of berry goodness that is both refreshing and satisfying. The intense raspberry flavor is complemented by a hint of floral notes, giving these berries a complexity that is truly unique. Whether you enjoy them straight off the bush or incorporated into your favorite recipes, Heritage Raspberries never fail to impress with their delectable taste.

Plant Appearance

Heritage Raspberries are not only a treat for the taste buds but also a visual delight in the garden. The plants are known for their vigorous growth and beautiful appearance. These raspberries typically grow in a bushy, upright manner, reaching heights of 4 to 5 feet. Their canes are covered in lush green foliage that provides a charming backdrop to the bright red berries.

The leaves of Heritage Raspberries are composed of three to five leaflets and have a striking, dark green color. This foliage not only adds to the plant's visual appeal but also plays a vital role in photosynthesis, ensuring healthy berry production. During the spring and summer months, the bushes are adorned with delicate white flowers that gradually give way to plump, juicy raspberries.

Unique Characteristics

What sets Heritage Raspberries apart from other raspberry varieties are their unique characteristics. One notable feature is their everbearing nature. Unlike many raspberry types that produce fruit once a year, Heritage Raspberries bear fruit in two distinct seasons. The first crop typically arrives in early summer, followed by a second, smaller harvest in late summer or early fall. This extended fruiting period allows gardeners to enjoy fresh raspberries for a more extended period.

Another distinctive characteristic is the ease of maintenance and pruning. Heritage Raspberries are known for their low-maintenance requirements, making them an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners. Their canes do not require complicated trellising, and pruning is relatively straightforward. This makes it simple to keep the plants tidy and encourage robust fruit production.

Additionally, Heritage Raspberries are known for their excellent disease resistance. They are less susceptible to common raspberry ailments like rust and mildew, ensuring a healthier and more bountiful harvest.

Heritage Raspberries are a delightful addition to any home garden. Their exceptional taste, striking appearance, and unique characteristics make them a favored choice among raspberry enthusiasts. Whether you're looking to savor their delectable flavor or enjoy the ease of cultivation, Heritage Raspberries are sure to be a rewarding addition to your garden. So, consider planting a bundle of these raspberry bushes to experience the joy of growing and enjoying these remarkable berries for yourself.

Cane berries prefer a deep, well-drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit on 2-year-old wood with everbearers producing on first-year wood. They thrive in most soil types. Cane berries are versatile and hardy in the coldest climates where other fruits fail. Plant late winter to early spring. Space 3’-4 in a row with 6’-8’ between rows.

Note: Red raspberries must be more than 300' from WILD blackberries, as the wild blackberries can carry some diseases that insects can transmit to the red raspberries if they are close enough, causing the red raspberries to have poor or no fruit.

Guarantee

Limited Dormant Tree & Plant Guarantee

* Claim deadline is June 15th

We guarantee that your dormant tree or plant will arrive in good, viable condition. If your tree arrives in substandard condition, notify us within 3 days of delivery. Please email pictures of the box, inside packaging, the tree and its roots to helpdesk@groworganic.com.  We will investigate your claim and process a request to exchange or refund the damaged product.

If your dormant tree or plant has not grown new leaves by June 15th, you may be eligible for our Limited Dormant Tree & Plant Guarantee. This guarantee provides for a store credit for the purchase price of the tree, excluding shipping. Please see the Instructions below.

Important Dates:

  • April 1st Dormant trees/plants must be planted in the ground
  • May 15th Perform scratch test, if no new leaves have grown
  • June 15th Deadline to apply for a dormant tree/plant credit

All required documentation must be received by June 15th for your claim to be considered. Claims or documentation received after June 15th will be denied, without exception. Instructions listed below

Terms and Conditions

We cannot guarantee that your tree or plant will remain alive and healthy after it is received, or bear fruit as there are too many variables in your environment that are beyond our control (i.e. soil preparation, weed and pest control, proper irrigation, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your growing zone, proper choice of pollinator, extreme weather, rodent damage, disease, etc.). 

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide a replacement tree/plant of the same species either that same growing season or in future years. Customers are responsible for all shipping fees associated with replacement trees and plants. 

If we determine that the tree you purchased directly from us is not viable, we will issue you a store credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of the affected dormant tree or plant. Shipping is not included in the dormant tree/plant guarantee. Store credits can be used to purchase any product we sell and are valid for use only until July 1st of the following year.

Historically, 98% of our dormant trees and plants grow and thrive when they have been cared for and planted using our growing guides. Dormant trees and plants must be planted in the ground by April 1st in order to be eligible for credit. If the ground in your area is still frozen solid, you may temporarily plant your tree or plant in a pot. 

Potted, non-dormant trees or plants are excluded from this guarantee as they are not dormant at the time of shipment. Evergreen trees such as citrus, avocado and olive trees are not available for credit under the Dormant Tree and Plant Guarantee. 

Instructions

We guarantee that your dormant fruit tree or plant will leaf out, if you care for it according to our growing guides. In the unlikely event that your dormant tree or plant does not have leaves by May 15th, follow these simple steps to apply for a store credit:

Before you call or email, please perform a “scratch test” to determine if the tree or plant is still alive. This video shows how to check for live tissue under the bark. Scratch tests need to be done a few inches above and below the graft. 

Green Cambium Layer / Living Trees

If the cambium layer under the bark is green, give your tree a little more time. It is still alive, but hasn’t come out of dormancy yet. Check to make sure that it is getting the right amount of deep root water, enough sunlight and that the weather is warm enough for that type of tree/plant to come out of dormancy. Every tree has its own personality and will come out of dormancy at different times. Be sure to submit the required documentation listed below by June 15th, if it doesn’t grow leaves.

Brown Cambium Layer / Dead Trees

If the scratch test shows a brown cambium layer or if your dormant tree/plant doesn’t have leaves by June 1st, please email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com. All required documentation listed below must be received by June 15th for your claim to be considered. To be considered for the guarantee claim, all required documentation must be received by June 15th.  Incomplete submissions will be denied.

Required Documentation

  1. Order number
  2. Name of dormant tree/plant and the quantity affected
  3. Photos of each tree or plant showing: 
    1. The roots (tree or plant must be pulled out of the ground)
    2. The scratch test areas
    3. The entire tree/plant

We reserve the right to not issue credit for items that have already been replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence that the tree/plant was not killed by root rot, rodent or mechanical damage.

While I followed the directions all the way, only one of the 3 plants shipped actually budded out and survived. Pretty disappointed since I also paid a bit for shipping too. Hopefully the one that did make it will be healthy.

doing okay

I typically can't grow much. Bought these on the spur of the moment when I saw them on sale at the nursery. Leafing out and starting to bloom. Hoping they'll become an anchor to my newest attempt at growing my own food.

Dead on arrival

Ordered three Willamette and three Heritage from Peaceful Valley. The Willamette are leafing out fine but all three of the heritage are dead as a door nail. So frustrating. I also planted six more of different varieties from another online nursery and they are all leafing out too. Only Heritage from Peaceful Valley are dead.
