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.

Full sun to partial sun.

Attracts birds, bees and butterflies.

White flowers, non-fragrant.

Raspberry Shrub 'Meeker Red'

Primocane type berries bloom and fruit on first-year wood and are often referred to as "everbearing" because they produce two crops on each biennial cane (unless pruned). The fall crop comes on current-season canes, at the top 1/3 of the canes. After overwintering, and if not pruned, a second crop will be produced in late spring to early summer at the bottom 2/3 of the canes. If a single but heavier crop is desired, all canes may be annually pruned to the ground before growth begins in spring. The new canes will produce fruit in late summer to fall of the same season.
