Default Millers?

Grew Heritage, Fall Gold and a black. The black tip roots and
became a
nasty weed.


i have lot of really nice black raspberries spread around my yard by
the chickens from a plant that used to grow by the former lambing pen
fence. yes, they certainly do love to root from the tips! i try to
keep them trimmed so they don't root where i don't want them
spreading.
i'm thinking of trying the Fall Gold. i haven't had any of those.
it's the closest commercial thing i've seen to a white raspberry that
was growing wild near Sodus NY. those were very good & the birds
completely ignored them. i wish i'd taken some cuttings.
i'm interested in growing raspberries in a hoop house. in theory, if
the bushes aren't getting rained on while the fruit is ripening, they
hold better on the bush. less disease issues, too.
