This NebGuide provides guidelines for identifying and cultivating raspberries.
Raspberries can be successfully grown in Nebraska. They are grown primarily by the home gardener and used fresh or frozen, in jams or in jellies. The red, yellow, black, and purple raspberry types are grown in eastern Nebraska, while western Nebraskans primarily grow only red berries.
This publication is not intended for the commercial grower but is, instead, targeted towards home gardeners who have limited space for raspberry production.
