Boise, Idaho is not a great climate to grow raspberries in being a high desert climat with heat up to 104 in the summer. I’ve tried 12 different varietiies mostly from Nourse and the Josephines consistently weather the heat the best producing large beautiful berries. If the temperature goes above 90 most varieties start to turn into raspberry raisins on the vine with sun scald. The Josephines weather the best by far and are more resistant to sun scald because the berries are mostly shaded by leaves above. If you grow berries in hot climates you need to have them shaded by mid afternoon from the hot sun. All my Josephine plants have grown from bare root. Nourse Farms is great. GlennGlenn M
We planted 50 Josophine 4 years ago. Here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, they bear from mid August until frost. It is worthy to mention that the firmness of this berry holds better against spotted winged drosophila compared to Himbo Top planted at the same time.Darrell H
