I have a bunch of the black raspberries that keep venturing around the yard…the thorns on those things will rip you apart. I did get fruit of triple crown for a few years (not much…i think it was because they were covered with snow). Maybe a dwarf is what would work best.
SWD is thick here. Even the early fruits now seem to get them (I’ve seen them in all raspberries…even the gold variety)…i’ve also seen them in sour cherries. Other fruit seem to be ok. I have some of that sugar substitute erythritol that has been shown to kill them so maybe i’ll spray this year and see what happens. Fall raspberries are the worst for them…i think the population overwinters here and even more fly in later in the summer on south winds.
Up to 74F… with light east winds…thank God for high pressure.
