Prelude raspberry

Prelude raspberry

Prelude raspberry is marketed as an ultra-early-ripening red raspberry (thus the name). But the variety is actually an everbearer that can give you a second crop in very late autumn if your growing season is long enough.

Sure enough, of the five Prelude plants we popped into the ground seven months ago, one flowered and is steadily working toward ripening its fruit. Given that we've had several spotty frosts plus one that blanked the entire farm, however, I don't hold out much hope we'll get to eat more than that single, nearly-ready fruit this year.

But we'll certainly be glad of the planting in June 2019!
