Two Quarts for only $10 - Berry Baskets Provided
wE're proud to offer two raspberry varieties to span the growing season: Caroline and Encore.
Caroline, appropriately named to match the location of our farm in Caroline, NY, are a red primocane raspberry. Primocane means that they produce fruit on their first year's cane growth. So this variety are trimmed back to the ground following each season in preparation for the next. However, because it produces fruit on the first year's growth, the picking season is later in the year. So look to pick Caroline Raspberries from Aug - fall frost (~early Oct).
Encore is also red, but is a Floricane raspberry. Floricane means that the plant produces the cane one year and the berries the next. Floricane raspberries take more end-of-the-year management to prune those canes that are finished producing, but yield an earlier harvest. So look to pick Encores starting mid to end of July. - Sadly, Encore will not be available in 2017, but will be back in 2018!
Come to Elmer Family Farm for Both Summer and Fall Raspberry Picking!!!
