Raspberry [Black Primocane] Niwot
First primocane black raspberry! Will produce berries in the fall, ripening in late
August until frost. It will also produce a good floricane crop, ripening slightly earlier than Jewel, depending on location. Niwot is
vigorous & highly productive therefore requiring trellising and recommended spacing is 3-4 feet apart in the row. The berry size is
equal in size to Jewel, Appears to have similar winter hardiness to Jewel.
Note: Do not plant Red, Gold or Purple raspberries within 75-100 feet of Black raspberries.
Black raspberries may be more susceptible to viral diseases carried by aphids to and
from nearby raspberry plants.
