Better raspberry than heritage? Pls recommend
Well, it's been 2 years now and I am unimpressed with my Heritage raspberries. They don't seem to grow particularly well, which is surprising considering how the wild brambles get on. But worse is that the fruit always taste bland and the texture is dry, like they have no juice. I thought maybe I was having a little trouble because our soil is on the light side, a sandy loam, and maybe I wasn't watering religously enough (a hose and a prayer?), but we had over 8 inches of rain this past month and the fruit is the same. Bland with a dry texture. All around the property are wild black raspberries, wineberries, and blackberries, all of which seem to thrive and (mostly) have delcious, juicy berries. I'm forced to conclude it isn't me or the land, so it must be the cultivar.
So can anyone recommend a good red raspberry? I have very fond memories of my parents' raspberry patch, but they aren't positive which they were growing. Besides it was a different state, soil, and climate. Thanks!
