Red Mammoth is a very productive summer-bearing (Floricane) variety of raspberry. An improvement over the prairie standard(Boyne) raspberry being sweeter, larger(rightfully named) and higher yielding. Berries typically average around 22mm in diameter. It rated first place for highest yield in growing trails in Manitoba. Berries are highly flavoured and great for fresh eating, freezing and processing. Berries start to ripen a few weeks later than Red Bounty, typically from around middle to late July and will produce all summer long. Canes will require support through trellising. Released by the University of Saskatchewan in 1999.
Also available in bundles of 5 and 10 plants
Growers Note: Canes must be pruned yearly to maintain healthy and productive plants. In the fall, after harvest, remove all the 2 year old (brown and woody) canes. You can go further and thin out excess 1 year old (green) canes until you are left with approx. 3-6” spacing between the remaining canes.
