This exciting, new dwarf thornless (that's right, thornless!) red raspberry has an endearing, rounded growth habit so it requires no staking! Plant it in your garden or in a large patio container. Monrovia's Raspberry Shortcake™ is self fertile, producing full-sized, nutritious and super-sweet raspberries in mid-Summer.
Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Water regularly when the top three inches of soil are dry. Fertilize with a balanced liquid fertilizer in early spring and summer. Once fruiting is finished, prune canes that have fruited, leaving new canes to fruit next season. Compact mound grows to 2 to 3 feet tall, spreading slightly wider. Look for Monrovia’s Raspberry Shortcake™ this season at Steins!
