I ordered these black raspberry plants from Nourse years ago. They are indestructible and prolific. I pick gallons off my vines each year. They need a large trellis, because they grow so well. Initially, I didn't realize how much space they needed and so I planted them too close to one another. I had to move 2 of my 5 plants in the middle of July and they survived the move without a hitch. I like the fact that they aren't everbearing but give their entire crop all at once. In Central Illinois that is late June. If you trellis them well, they are super easy to pick.

Northern IL.- Purchased and planted 25 plants in 2016. With basic soil prep (spring tilling and a light layer of composted manure) and lots of mulch I had 100% germination. Plants are very strong and vigorous growers. With proper care and pruning I was blessed with an amazing harvest of 23 pounds berries for my first crop in 2018! In case you didn't raspberries make the greatest jelly on earth!.

I planted these raspberry plants in a raised bed in April 2018, and they are producing now. All of the plants are thriving.
