Raspberry Shortcake – Bushel and Berry

It’s thornless! Raspberry Shortcake bares delicious juicy fruit on mounded plants that only grow 2-3′ tall and wide. With its compact growth habit, it thrives in patio pots or in your landscape. Perfect for families with kids or pets as it has no thorns. The kids will adore harvesting healthy, organic food right in their own yard. No staking needed. Plants flower in the spring then produce full-size, nutritious and super sweet raspberries mid-summer.

Fantastic in containers, in the veggie garden, as a small decorative shrub, or in mass plantings.

 Whether you have an urban balcony or a country estate, you can savor the experience of fresh raspberries from your very own plants. 

Raspberry Shortcake is a member of the outstanding Bushel and Barrel series.

Growing Instructions

Plant in full sun, in soil with good drainage. Fertilize in early spring with balanced liquid fertilizer. Water thoroughly when dry. If leaves begin to yellow or droop in summer apply a balanced liquid fertilizer and water well. This dwarf red raspberry produces abundant new canes each spring and fruits on two year old canes. In early spring, you should start to see new green sprouts coming up from both soil and on some of the canes. New sprouts from the ground will become canes that fruit next year. Leave all the new shoots from the ground and old canes that have green leaves emerging. Cut all the dead canes with no new growth at ground level. Plants can be grown in containers or in the ground. In the ground plant in areas where plants can spread to 3′ wide. .
