We've been picking about three cups of these every two days. It's more than enough to make about three raspberry crisps every week. I don't know what eating that many crisps is going to do for my health, but I have sure been enjoying this years harvest.
About 7 years ago, I bought one heritage raspberry bush for $12.95 from our local garden center. Since then, I have split it numerous times and let it spread to two 8 foot long and 3 foot wide hedges. Most years, we have gathered about 15-18 pounds of fruit. If you live where raspberries grow wild, you might be able to pick a handful here and there. But nothing beats the production and enjoyment of these!
