Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
The Raspberry, Rubus ‘Boyne’ is THE summer producing red raspberry for extreme arctic climates! Released in 1960, ‘Boyne’ is an early-season variety that is extremely winter hardy. Fruits are medium size and tremendously flavorful when they open in the middle of July. ‘Boyne’, is an attractive berry with a delicious sweet, aromatic flavor, making it an excellent choice for fresh eating, canning, freezing and desserts. Sturdy uprights canes will not need trellising to support the abundant fruit production. It consistently produces deep-red, medium-sized berries. It will grow where other varieties experience winter injury damage to the canes. Grows successfully in Zones 3-6. Fruit are borne on dwarf canes that are easy to pick. ‘Boyne’ is an excellent plant maker and may bear a week or ten days before ‘Latham’. Heavy cropper.
Plant as soon as soil may be worked in the spring. Your plants require 1″ of water per week during the growing season and regular, shallow cultivation. The bush will bear only on one-year-old stems. As soon as canes have produced fruit, prune them back to the ground to make room for the strong new canes. Additional pruning will be required to eliminate tangling and improve their ability to bear.
