Raspberry plants generally ship from December – April.
The red raspberry Dorma Red plant is great for the southeast. Dorma Red produces a heavy crop of large sweet dome-shaped berries in late spring and early summer. The glossy red fruit grow on tall prickly canes and are good for eating fresh and freezing.
This cultivar prefers sun and well-drained, moderately fertile soil, but unlike most other red raspberries, does not require a cold winter and gradual spring to produce good fruit. Fruits are borne on second-year canes; prune these canes to the ground in fall to make room for next year’s producing canes. The tall canes may need training to a fence or trellis. Like all red raspberries, this cultivar makes a rewarding plant for the culinary garden.
Note: It is best to not plant Red, Gold or Purple raspberries within 75-100 feet of Black raspberries. Black raspberries may be more susceptible to viral diseases carried by aphids to and from nearby raspberry plants.
