Red Raspberry 'Meeker'


June-bearing. Large, thimble shaped, dark red fruit with high sugar content and good quality flavor. Best home garden variety for eating fresh, freezing, canning, and processing.


2-year old plant divisions that will bear fruit this year when planted early in spring. My favorite raspberry, it's a vigorous grower with a bountiful harvest of berries that are great for any use one can think or.
Meeker is not particularly adapted to heavy soils, however, it does have decent resistance to Botrytis Rot and will tolerate more wetness and humidity than other varieties.
