Honey Queen Everbearing Raspberry
Honey Queen Everbearing Raspberry lives up to its name with its deliciously sweet honey flavor packed into beautiful yellow berries. Yellow and golden raspberries have less acidity and tartness than the more popular red raspberries and Honey Queen is one of the sweetest in the bunch! Another bonus for Honey Queen, it is said to perform better in shady conditions than any other raspberry, though you should still plant it in a place that gets as much sun as possible.
