I've been growing raspberries for some time because I love them, they're easy to grow and expensive to buy. In my area, though, we get inundated with Japanese Beetles starting around the 4th of July and lasting for about a month or month-and-a-half. Nothing turns me off to a ripe raspberry more than seeing those evil devils feasting and mating on top of one. I have caged my bed with tulle fabric to keep them out and it mostly works, but is a pain to put up, only works somewhat, and discourages me from getting in there to pick. I finally had enough and pulled out my plants, planning to replace them with fall bearers, which I was hoping would bear after the beetles are gone. I came here and did a search to find the best fall bearers, but seeing the zones in some of the threads made me wonder whether my new strategy will work. Are there some fall bearers that produce in the narrow window I have before the average first frost date of October 15th? and if so, what varieties do you recommend? I only want a few for my personal consumption. Thanks for any help you can give me.
