Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Willamette Raspberry is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Rubus idaeus

As its name implies, the Willamette likes a slow-warming Spring such as those in the Pacific Northwest. But this variety has been widely planted around the world with great success. You'll enjoy a big crop of tasty tart berries earlier in the Summer than other raspberry varieties. You'll want to fill up on them while they are fresh. But they're also great for pies and pastries, jams and jellies.

Planting & Care

Raspberries require rich, well mulched soil that drains well. Adjust pH to 5.6 - 6.2 with the use of an acid fertilizer, sulfur, or aluminum sulfate according to label instructions. Liberal amounts of an acid type compost such as one formulated for Azaleas / Camellias / Rhododendrons mixed with the native soil will help create the proper environment. Never use animal manures with acid plants. Raspberries like sun with afternoon shade in hot climates. Protect the roots from drying out by watering regularly and mulching. Raspberries can produce canes up to 10', so provide a strong trellis.
