Amazing! Large, sweet, outstanding flavor, nice firm fruit on canes with strong vigor, early, high production and disease resistance define this superior variety of red raspberry. Thus many are recognizing this raspberry variety as superior to many others. It resists root-rot (a major red raspberry disease) and fruits 2-3 weeks before Heritage, thus ripening many berries before frost. The flavor is excellent, among the best raspberries and is tangy, aromatic, sweet and delicious. Good even into October, sometimes even November in KY. Was a hit at our local farmer’s market. Over time, or with poor care the berry size seems to decrease.
That is an actual photo of our Caroline raspberries vines in July 2016 on our farm. Note the exceptionally large berries, great color and nice shape of the berries. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA.
