Baba raspberry help
I just put in a couple of Baba raspberry plants (in January). They are fruiting now and they have quite a few berries considering they are only a foot to a foot and a half tall. They are producing new canes also. My question is how to prune them?
I know there are one or two "fruit guru's" on here that grow them. There's not much help out there on the internet as they are not real common. I am thinking they are supposed to fruit in both fall and spring (one large fruit set and a smaller fruit set at the other time), but I can't remember which is when. Should I be cutting down these canes that are fruiting now when they are done fruiting or will these fruit again in fall? I am thinking I should cut them down after they are finished fruiting since they are setting fruit on the bottoms of the canes (all of the plant as it was shipped to me), but I don't want to screw it up.
Raspberries don't do well in my part of the country, but since I have tasted them now I am really hoping they make it once the heat sets in full force. They are in the ground with shade during the worst of the heat and lots of mulch to try and keep them cool. I can't wait for the blackberries to ripen!
