Description

Introduced by Peter Tallman, a private breeder in Colorado, Niwot will produce berries in the fall, ripening in late August until frost. It will also produce a good floricane crop, ripening slightly earlier than Jewel, depending on location. Niwot is vigorous, highly productive, and has attractive, shiny fruit. The berry size is equal in size to Jewel, and the flavor is reported to have less intensity than Jewel. It is a vigorous variety, therefore requiring trellising and recommended spacing is 3-4 feet apart in the row. Niwot appears to have similar winter hardiness to Jewel.  

U.S. Plant Patent Pending

Tipping or tip pruning is highly recommended for primocane-bearing black raspberries. As the primocanes reach 3', pinch or cut the tips to force branches to develop. Tipping will delay, but prolong, the harvest, increase yield and reduce arching of the canes and tip rooting. Pruning later in the season decreases the amount of time the plant will have to develop the branches. Not pruning the primocanes will allow earlier ripening than the tip-pruning option, however the canes will become tall and arching, and will develop fewer berries.
