An ideal plant for home gardens, the Glencoe Purple Thornless Raspberry bush is a creation of the Scottish Crop Research Institute and is a mix between black and red raspberries.
The Glencoe is a compact plant and does great in containers! This raspberry bush is self-pollinating and will produce fruit with only a single plant. Rasberries will begin to ripen in early summer and fresh fruit has never been easier to enjoy right off the plant!
The Glencoe prefers full sunlight and well-drained soil and will grow to be 6 to 8 feet tall in maturity. The raspberry bush show pest and disease resistance qualities. It also shows good resistance to verticillium wilt disease.
Grows best in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-8. Does not like the super hot summers like in Florida. Perfect Plants ships this raspberry bush rooted in a pot with soil. We do not ship bare root plants. When the plants arrive, prepare to plant immediately. Shake off the excess dirt around the root ball before planting to give the root system room to grow. Plants will grow immediately and can grow several inches tall in the first month of planting.
