Caroline raspberry has a larger berry than Heritage and is more productive, with a rich, full, and intense raspberry flavor. It is a very vigorous variety, with more tolerance for root rot than Heritage. The farther south you grow it, the earlier it will ripen. Caroline is widely adapted, growing everywhere from the East Coast to the West Coast. This variety does not tolerate high heat and drought.

While they are stated as a non patented variety in the catalog this seems to be a mistake. Never ever ever buy patented varieties! Whats the point if you cant propagate.

I just bought some more of these from an earlier planting I made several years ago. Of three varieties of raspberries I planted, these were the most productive and best tasting. The berries didn't get all squishy and fall apart; very good, tart raspberry flavor.

I grew the Caroline for 5 years on the east side of the house. They got the morning sun till noon. The rest of the day they were in the shade. The only problem I had was keeping my dog from eating them LOL. :) Just made sure they got plenty of water. I am getting ready to order them again.

About 3 years ago we moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Last year we were finally able to establish our garden and planted 5 Caroline Raspberry Plants. We love them! We actually harvested a couple of handfuls last year which made for a nice treat while working in our garden. We ordered more this year because they have done well. They are a nice size and the best tasting red raspberry we have had. Thank you!

They are a great raspberry plant, I live on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, I live on an old river bottom, lots of rock and gravel under eight inches of soil. I have a couple of places where the soil is heavier, and a little lower in level by a couple of inches, this area, three plants failed, I replanted them and used some play sand with the plants and they grew normally, They like well drained soil. They are slow to develop the first year, the second year they took off and are heavy producers. I have them on two guy-wires, at least three and a half feet apart for ventilation.

I bought 5 Caroline berry plants. They grew beautifully with lots of flowers and berries and prolific floricane growth. I am very pleased with this variety. Large fruit with great flavor.

I love the taste of this raspberry and it produces big time when it gets what it needs. And what it needs is tons of water. Our Spring was a deluge and Caroline responded in kind. It definitely does not tolerate even moderately dry conditions so I installed drip irrigation. It’s a bit of a diva, but worth the extra effort.
