This raspberry seems to thrive on neglect! I started with only 12 plants and now have well over 100 in about 4 years. I have not have had any trouble with disease. It has produced even in the driest of summers without much extra water. Nice large tasty berries all summer long until frost. My only negative comment is to be careful where to plant it because it is a vigorous grower and will take over other beds if they are close by sending shoots underground.
'Heritage' is a pretty good berry. The best berries come in the late summer, and they produce more of them if they are cut back in late fall to early spring. They are a bit heavy on seeds. This variety does not particularly need to be staked.
