Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
This reliable favorite Junebearer ripens mid-season and is long harvesting. Vigorous, productive canes and excellent fruit with a sweet flavor make this a garden favorite. ‘Latham’ red berries are large, firm and attractive. Most popular variety; ripens in late June, cold hardy. Cut spent canes to the ground after they finish fruiting.
Plant as soon as soil may be worked in the spring. Your plants require 1″ of water per week during the growing season and regular, shallow cultivation. The bush will bear only on one-year-old stems. As soon as canes have produced fruit, prune them back to the ground to make room for the strong new canes. Additional pruning will be required to eliminate tangling and improve their ability to bear.
