Loaded Raspberry Canes, David
MacTavish, Hutchinson Farm, Burlington, ON,
July 9, 2010
|Grown at Hutchinson Farm since
the 1980's. Available late June - mid July 2015.
- In season
Late June to mid July/end July.
Raspberries typically begin 3-4 weeks after
strawberries start. Peak harvest is often the
first two weeks of July, after which the berries
gradually get harder to pick, until it is just too
hard to pick by August.
- Purchasing tips
Fresh picked that day is best. Raspberries
picked shortly after rain will be soft and not
keep as long. Containers should be
shallow -bottom berries will squish if piled more
than 2" deep.
