Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne Raspberry)
Double Delight Raspberry

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 deliciously sweet and tart while colourful, great for U-pick operations, fresh eating, or using in products such as jams and pies. They can be a bit softer than other raspberry varieties.

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.

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 flavor. They freeze well and are suitable for use in jams, juices, and pies.
