Cascade Gold Raspberry
Cascade Gold Raspberry is an excellent golden raspberry that is uniquely suited to the Pacific Northwest. Bred by Washington State University and the USDA, this superior variety has been a favorite here in the northwest corner of the United States for many years because of its excellent flavor, high productivity and increased disease resistance. It is a floricane or June bearing raspberry meaning that it produces its fruit on second year wood and makes one big crop in June. Cascade Gold makes an excellent addition to Fall Gold for deliciously sweet golden raspberries all season long! It’s the golden road to unlimited raspberry devotion!
