Willamette Raspberry was once the most popular raspberry in America and is still the most widely planted raspberry in the world.

It remains a favorite for home gardeners and commercial growers because of its rich sweet tart raspberry flavor. The flavor of Willamette is so good, that processors will pay up to double the price per pound compared to other raspberry varieties!

Willamette bears fruit early in the season, usually in June. It's medium sized berries are dark red and are are great for fresh eating, jams, jellies, sauces, freezing and baking.

This classic, self-fertile, variety has vigorous canes that grow 8 to 9 ft tall and should be trained to a trellis or fence. Willamette's  is resistant to RBDV. Plant about 3 feet apart in USDA Zone 5-8 and Zone 4 with wind protection.

Plants were originally 5+ foot tall, but will be pruned to 10 inches tall for proper planting height. This forces buds from the lower cane and roots which will produce more fruit.
