Raspberry Varieties

Introduction

A raspberry – delicious, sweet, tangy, and sometimes even a little sharp. This guide covers both summer and autumn raspberry varieties. If a gardener chooses to grow both types, it is possible to enjoy a raspberry harvest from May until October.

Raspberries come in many colours, from the traditional red to yellow, gold, and purple types. There are differences in sweetness levels and size of fruit depending on the variety chosen. Raspberries have been crossed with blackberries to create hybrid berries like tayberries, loganberries, and boysenberries, fruit that combine the best characteristics of both parents.
