Red Mammoth is a highly productive summer-bearing (Floricane) variety of raspberry. It's an improvement over the prairie standard (Boyne) raspberry being sweeter, larger (rightfully named) and higher yielding.
The delicious Red Mammoth Raspberries typically average around 2.2 cm (just under 1") in diameter. It was rated first place for highest yield in growing trials 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 the middle of July and will produce all summer long. Canes will require support through trellising. Released by the University of Saskatchewan in 1999.
Available in bundles of 5 or 10.
Growers Note: Canes must be pruned yearly to maintain health and productiveness. In the fall (or early spring before they break dormancy) remove all two year old (brown and woody) canes. You can go further and thin out excess first old (green) canes until you are left with approx. 3 to 6 feet spacing between the remaining canes.
