Released in 1960, Boyne raspberry is an early-season variety that is extremely winter hardy. It consistently produces deep-red, medium-sized berries. The medium sweet, aromatic flavor makes it great for freezing and jam. It will grow where other varieties experience winter injury damage to the canes.

Great plants at a great price. Fast growing and easy to care for all season. The taste is great and the only problem I have is I need more room to grow more plants! I recommend this variety to anyone that loves raspberries.

The 5 plants we ordered are growing slowly and short in stature. Our bed is in a shaded and damp location. I trimmed back surrounding plants to see what happens next year.

So, for you folks outside of the “easy” zone 4 and 5s, this review is for you :). I am in zone 3 (northern Minnesota), I have the option of either sand or clay for soil, and the winter temps the last 2 years have tickled 40 below. Also, I am a novice gardener. I know that is a formula for catastrophe. However, I bought both Boyne and Nova raspberries from Nourse and both have flourished! Their website is just terrific, and if you are really clueless (me), they are wonderful at answering questions. I have had nearly 100% survival and production from the excellent product that I have received from Nourse. Both my son and daughter have had similar impressive results. Same great results with strawberries and asparagus. Yup... I am now a dedicated fan :)

We are starting a small U pick business. I ordered the majority of plants from Nourse based on excellent reviews by previous customers and the education available on the Nourse web site.
We made the right decision. The bare root plants were large and had impressive roots . Nearly 100 percent of plants grew and continue to grow vigorously producing a fair amount of berries which we did not expect in the first year. Only 60 to 70 per cent of the plants we received from a competing nursery grew and with much less vigor despite the same care. I can’t foresee any competitor matching or exceeding the value of product from Nourse.

These seem like great plants that are doing well. I won't have raspberries until next year but I had a few on the initial stocks and they were delicious. Thanks Nourse!

Good plants, and healthy I can't believe that I planted my raspberries this spring and I'm already eating raspberries

As a novice and a first experience in planting bare-root plants I am greatly impressed. This spring I completely rehabilitated a 16 Ft row of previously sick Latham berries: Deeply spaded and added much peat moss, checked soil chemistry. Ordered 5 plants each of Boyne and Polana. Plants arrived and were in the ground the last week of May. All grew well, leafed out, more than half also sent up new cane starts along the roots, surprise! I expected to wait a season before getting any berries, but at a month and a half they were setting blossoms, and now we have had perhaps two cups of berries! Wow, A happy experience!
