Yes, I like all our raspberries, but if I had to choose only one to grow it would be Prelude. I can never tell for sure if they made it until they actually start leafing out, which, this year looks to be a good month away still. What seems to do the canes in during winter is a combination of lack of snow cover, extreme cold, and harsh winds. My gut tells me they’ve held up pretty well this year. On all my primocane bearing cultivars (Fall Gold, Prelude, Anne, Heritage, Double Gold, Cascade) I’ve found if I have good winter survival of the floricanes, sure, I get a nice early summer crop. However, the primocanes coming up have more competition, aren’t as robust, and the resulting fall crop is a bit smaller. Whereas, when a lot of the floricanes die from winter damage, the primocanes have less early season competition, are much more robust, and I get a huge fall crop, so it seems to pretty much even out. I should add, I never lose Fall Gold, they seem to handle the tough winters better than any other cultivar.
