Characteristics and features:
The ‘Heritage’ is a self-fertile, double cropping variety. It
reproduces fruit until the autumn. After the first harvest, cut
the stems to just above soil level and after winter, prune only
the dry wood from the stems which produced fruit in the autumn.
It is these stems which will be responsible for the first yield
the following summer. ‘Heritage’ variety raspberries are of
medium size, very firm and tasty.
You can train your raspberry
bush around a pergola or along a fence.
