We’ve been planting out a paddock full of berries at Heritage Farm. To get bulk pricing on some of the plants, we’ve had to order more than we needed. In this case, we’ll have spare Chilcotin raspberry canes available for a short time only.
Chilcotin is a high yielding, floricane variety- that means it fruits on second year shoots, in Summer. The harvest season lasts for around four weeks, and you should be picking your first berries just before christmas. You may get a second, small flush of fruit in Autumn as well. Chilcotin has large berries, and is more resistant to diseases than many other varieties, lending itself to organic gardening.
These Chilcotin raspberry canes are pre-order: We expect them to arrive the week of the 27th of June. We’ll call you the day they arrive on farm to arrange your pickup. While we can store them if it takes a week or two to organise you getting here, anything that hasn’t been pre-ordered will be planted out in the field with the others. That means if you don’t order, you’ll miss out! We also have Heritage raspberry canes available here.
