The amazing Glencoe Raspberry is proof that great things come in small packages. The Glencoe Raspberry is a self-fertile cross between a black raspberry and a red raspberry. The result is a small, nearly thornless, easy to grow plant that only reaches a full size of 2 to 5 feet tall in the ground. Glencoe Raspberry Plants can also be grown in containers where they will stay even smaller and can be cut back to remain at the perfect container-growing size. Glencoe Raspberries are dark red to purple and have a tangy-sweet, rich raspberry taste.
Glencoe Raspberry Plants are suited for outdoor growing in USDA Zones 4 to 8, where they like full sun, lots of water, and well-drained but nutrient-rich soil. The berries ripen at various times throughout the growing season from late spring to late fall. The Glencoe Raspberry Plant is a heavy producer, and each plant can yield 2 or more cups of ripe berries as often as twice per week in late summer and early fall. Glencoe Raspberry Plants do not grow as wide or tall as Red or Yellow Raspberries, so they make a great edible plant for small spots or containers.
