You are buying rootstock. Rootstock produces more canes than bare root raspberry canes at less than half of the cost. This is the preferred method for raspberry farmers because of the lower cost and the ease of planting .

Starting raspberries from rootstock is the most economical way to start raspberry plants. All it takes is a little patience and remembering to water regularly. If your soil is too wet or cold to till, the raspberry roots can be planted in containers 1/2 inch deep to root out before they are planted in their permanent location. Place the containers in a sunny warm location. Usually in about 3-4 months after you planted the containers, they are ready to plant in the permanent garden area. One oz. of roots plants 4 containers.

You can expect 48-72 new canes to grow from 16 oz. of rootstock the first year. Second photo shows 8 ounces of rootstock. Third photo shows canes grown in 1st year from 8 ounces of rootstock.
