This is a thornless red raspberry. Berries grow on 2-year old canes, which are then cut to the ground when dormant. Each cane produces another 6-10 off shoots/year, so you have plenty to expand your garden or share. Berries are sweet. I love this plant!

I have not grown Canby. But, I've ordered 100 plants for the spring 2005. What I tasted it is a good berry, size wise, but, I am not impressed with flavor. Blan to me!! I've been told it's very sweet. I like a little kick like Boyne has! Plus Boyne is earlier & I am first at Farmers Market with berries!!
