Summer's First Sweet Berries!

Write your own review

If you simply cannot wait for those first raspberries of the summer, Prelude is for you! Berries ripen earlier than any standard variety (mid June), and bear a smaller crop again in the fall. Rich coral-red colored berries are sugary sweet and bursting with juice, yet are firm enough to hold up for processing. Plants are hardy and vigorous, with very few thorns and fruit spaced openly for ease of picking. Easy to maintain and disease resistant— just enjoy tons of sun-sweetened berries each summer.

No. 1, 1-yr. plants.
