Tuesday July 5th we will finally start picking raspberries. This is by far the latest we have ever started. The Lauren raspberry floricanes (the canes that produce this years crop) were killed by the cold weather and mice this year so we will have to wait for next year for them to be available. We will be picking K81-6 red raspberries and Royalty purple raspberries. The Royalty berries are a cross between red raspberries and black raspberries (black caps). The are my favorite berry for jam or anywhere you want a lot of raspberry flavor. K81-6 raspberries are my favorite for eating fresh. But I would suggest you try both, everyone's tastes are different. Blueberries will be a week or so more before we start picking them. I hope you have a berry nice 4th of July.
