The Joan J Raspberry is a self-pollinating variety with thornless, strong canes that require little to no support. This raspberry bush will produce large, firm berries from early autumn through frost. The red berries release easily for effortless picking. Eat them fresh or freeze them for later use.
As a primocane (everbearing) plant, this raspberry will blossom and fruit on first year’s growth. Raspberry plants will generate new canes each growing season. Everbearing raspberries will produce berries on first year's growth and again the second year. Simply prune 2nd year canes to the ground in late winter, and let the growing cycle repeat itself in the upcoming season.
We do not advise that you plant raspberries near tomatoes, eggplant, peppers or potatoes, or in a location where those plants have been grown in the previous 4-5 years. The reason being is that the soil may contain common blights and fungal diseases such as Verticillium, which are associated with those plants, and can easily spread to the Raspberry.
