Honey Queen Raspberry

Honey Queen Raspberry is known for its sweet honey flavor and unique yellow color. Its berries are soft and medium-sized, nice for picking and eating in the summer.

Honey Queen was developed in Rocky Mountain House by Robert Erskine and is very winter hardy. Canes are yellowish, floricane, arched and moderately spiny.

Honey Queen should be trellised upright for best results. While all raspberries prefer the sun, Honey Queen is the best option for planting in shady areas.

Encore Raspberry ripens late season and features nearly spineless branches for easier picking. Its smaller, red berries are sweet and perfect for homemade jams, preserves, or eating straight off the plant.

Encore Raspberry is a floricane raspberry variety, meaning it only produces berries on second-year canes. Cut back dead two-year-old canes as needed, leaving last year's growth.
