Source for Baba raspberries

neptune24August 23, 2012

Does anyone know where you can order Baba raspberries online? I did a lot of searching, and the only two places I could find were:

1) That nursery which shall not be named

and

2) Willis Orchard, which doesn't seem to be a whole lot better.

Isn't there any other place under the sun that sells this variety? Thanks for any info.

Well, I think they may be falling out of favor, neptune. I just chatted with the folks at Cedros Gardens in Encinitas, CA. They used to carry them, but stopped carrying them as they found that they tended to revert back to whatever the original cultivar was (probably wild) and produce smaller berries. Still good tasting, but very small. Other folks that used to carry them were Bay Laurel Nursery and Raintree. You could try calling both of them to see why they are also no longer offering the Bababerry/ Baba Raspberry.

Thanks, Patty. I should have realized that if nobody's carrying them, there must be a reason. I guess the Baba raspberry is now known as:

The Bye Bye raspberry :)
