Snowberry vs Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Symphoricarpos albus

Rubus Souris

Snowberry
Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Snowberry is small deciduous shrub with characteristic white to pink flowers and clusters of white fruit.

This North American native species is very adaptable, and can be used for erosion control in riparian and restoration areas. Snowberry's fruit attracts wildlife, and livestock can consume the berries without issue.

Souris is an improved version of Boyne, the classic prairie raspberry. It is planted all across Canada and is extremely robust. Where other raspberry cultivars rely on unique selling points and specializations, Souris is just generally a great raspberry.


Souris is cold hardy and resistant to disease and spider mites. Its berries are delicious and colourful, great for U-pick operations, fresh eating, or using in products such as jams and pies.


Souris canes are 3-5 feet tall, sturdy, and floricane. This means that raspberries will not grow on canes the year they first grow. The mature canes they do grow on, however, produce more berries than primocane varieties.
