Raspberry ‘Jewel’ 2 YR

Raspberry ‘Jewel’ is a favorite with large, flavorful black raspberries!  The New York Fruit Testing Station introduction rated this the best black raspberry.  ‘Jewel’ is a vigorous plant and ripens early.  It is a cross between ‘Bristol’ and ‘Dundee,’ creating a highly disease-resistant plant.  It is winter hardy and produces excellent yields of superb quality shiny black raspberries.

Raspberry ‘Jewel’ is an excellent choice for jams and jellies due to its sweet, flavorful berries.  They are great to blend into smoothies or add to baked treats for a colorful and lip-smacking treat.  When left unpruned, Raspberries provide excellent nesting for birds, as well as a food source.

(This product is size 2 YR and includes 10 plants per unit.)

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Raspberries require a well-drained but consistently moist, rich soil for best growth. They need full sun for highest fruit production. For bareroot plants, use a hoe to make a trench 2" deep the length of the bed. Spread roots along the bottom of the trench and cover immediately. Take care while planting to keep roots at the 2" level. This will promote suckers to develop from the roots. Fertilize your plants once a year in the spring before the plants bloom with a natural or organic, basic garden fertilizer. We recommend using a trellis to support your raspberry canes. A trellis keeps the fruit off the ground, makes picking much easier, and maintains good aeration to help with disease control. Use a four-wire trellis system for black raspberries. Four wires are attached to fence posts vertically and the raspberry canes are wrapped around the wires. Pruning: Raspberry roots and crowns live for a very long time, but the canes die after two years. In early spring cut out the small canes at the base, leaving 4-5 of the strongest canes per clump. Then cut back the side (lateral) branches so they're only about 12-inches long. In May, cut back the tip of each cane 3 to 4 inches to encourage side branches to grow so you get more fruit.

Pests or Diseases: Highly Disease Resistance. Resistant to anthracnose.
