Common Snowberry
Double Delight Raspberry

Common Snowberry is a 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.

Double Delight is a primocane cultivar, able to produce berries on new growth and significantly increase the size of your harvest. Since this variety is fast growing, the difference can rapidly add up!

Double Delight raspberries have an excellent sweet-sour flavour. They freeze well and are suitable for use in jams, juices, and pies.
