An autumn bearer with good quality berries. These berries are best treated as an annual. Growing Raspberries successfully requires cutting low to the ground each winter. An easy way to do this is to have them in a position where they can be mowed over. They will re-shoot in spring. Good disease resistance.

Customer Comments on Raspberries
Is the picking period of Feb correct for Heritage? I am growing in Brisbane and am picking in late Oct. Growing in morning sun, shade from mid afternoon. Delicious. | Allen - Brisbane, QLD 27-Oct-2008
Quote from a diggers club catalogue: 'heritage - this variety produces a light summer crop, followed by huge yields in autumn until frosts start. fruiting from march to april.' | Ruth - Toowoomba, QLD 08-Jan-2009
It is Feb and now harvesting a second heavier crop on the Heritage (first was in Oct). | Allen - Brisbane, QLD 18-Feb-2009
I planted 2 raspberry bushes in January 2009 and they have grown very quickly. I started picking raspberries this week. Fantastic! | Tanya - Redland, QLD 22-Mar-2009
I have many varieties here; but Willamette seems by far the most prolific. We had 20 frosts this Winter in our little hollow, and that seems to have sparked prolific flowering this week - hopefully a good crop soon! | Jon Albiez - Toowoomba, QLD 11-Nov-2010
We're harvesting our second crop (first in Oct)of a three year old Williamette. We have other varieties but this is the most productive, but it escapes from the bed and tries to take over the yard, but what a tasty lawn menace, yumm. | Lonie - Cheltenham, VIC 16-Feb-2011
