The Rubus idaeus 'Meeker' - Meeker Raspberry is a hybrid that was developed by Washington State University in 1967 and it remains a favorite for commercial production as well as for home gardeners. Sturdy canes produce sweet, juicy red berries in late summer. The berries have a high sugar content and are excellent for eating fresh or preserving.
This low-maintenance plant has an upright growth habit, and white flowers bloom in May, with fruit ripening in July. The red raspberries can be eaten fresh or used to make jellies, jams, or preserves. The fruit freezes well or can be used in baked goods. The Meeker Red Raspberry grows as a perennial in USDA zones 5 through 8.
