Niwot Black Raspberry – 2 Gallon


Rubus occidentalis

Introduced by Peter Tallman, a private breeder in Colorado, Niwot will produce berries in the fall, ripening in late August until frost. It will also produce a good floricane crop, ripening slightly earlier than Jewel, depending on location. Niwot is vigorous, highly productive, and has attractive, shiny fruit. The berry size is equal in size to Jewel, and the flavor is reported to have less intensity than Jewel. It is a vigorous variety, therefore requiring trellising and recommended spacing is 3-4 feet apart in the row. Niwot appears to have similar winter hardiness to Jewel. Berry Color: Black Berry Size: Large Best in Zones: 5 – 8 Firmness: Firm Flavor: Good/Exc Freezing Quality: Good Winter Hardy: Good

Can reach 5 -6′ tall.
