Highbush Cranberry vs Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Viburnum trilobum

Rubus Souris

Highbush Cranberry
Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Highbush Cranberry produces attractive white flowers in late June and bears edible fruit that matures to a bright red colour in the late summer.

This shrub, native to much of Canada, is fast growing, and its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce to serve with various proteins. Consider buying one for your next home landscaping project.

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.
