Pruning Raspberries

Summer of Rasberries: These fruit on two year old wood. After harvest, the two year old fruiting wood begins to die and can be removed. The one year old canes that are left can then be thinned the following winter to remove the weaker canes, and those selected to remain for the next summer’s crop can be cut back to head height. Usually seven to ten canes are left per hill.

Everbearing Raspberries: These are handled much the same way except that they fruit in the fall on primo canes, or this year’s growth. The fruit will appear on the top foot or so of the cane, and it is a common practice to remove the portion of the cane that fruited after harvest, leaving the flora cane to produce next summer’s crop. The ever-bearing raspberry thus produces a summer crop on second-year wood and a fall crop on current season wood. As with one-crop raspberries, the two year old canes die and are removed (cut back to the stub) after the harvest or during the following winter’s dormant period.

***Ninety percent of your production will occur in the fall, ten percent in summer. If you want lots of berries in summer, we suggest planting a few summer crop varieties.
