Red Raspberries (summer bearing)
In Pennsylvania, summer-bearing red raspberries bloom from late May to early June and ripen in July.
Boyne: Very winter hardy and productive. Berries are dark red and small to medium sized. Plants are short.
Canby: A mid-season berry that is moderately winter hardy and nearly thornless. It is productive, with attractive medium to large fruit.
Killarney: An old variety that's been around for over 50 years. Killarney is very winter hardy. Fruit is medium sized with excellent flavor.
Latham: A mid-season berry with excellent cold-hardiness. Although the plant is susceptible to mildew, it tolerates viruses fairly well. Fruit size is small to medium, flavor is acceptable, firmness is good; it has a relatively long bearing season. An old standard eastern variety.
Nova: Bright-red, firm fruit with good flavor but average size. Plants are vigorous, high yielding, and winter hardy. Resistant to cane diseases and late leaf rust.
Reveille: A very early berry with good cold-hardiness and vigor. Fruit is soft but excellent for home garden use. Flavor is good, size is intermediate, and productivity is fair. Very cold hardy.
Taylor: A late-season berry with medium fruit size, very good flavor, and moderate winter-hardiness. Very susceptible to mosaic, fungal diseases, and twospotted spider mites.
Titan: A productive variety with mildly flavored, very large cone-shaped berries. The plants have excellent vigor, but poor to moderate winter-hardiness. The fruits are soft, and some growers feel the appearance is too "rough." Titan is particularly susceptible to phytophthora root rot but resistant to the raspberry aphid, which spreads some viruses.
