Royalty Purple Raspberry
This raspberry is a very prolific bearer of VERY large, dusky purple raspberries. Royalty is a blend of red raspberry vigor and black raspberry habit. It has the best flavors of its parents, and ripens in early summer after the black raspberries. This raspberry grows like a blackberry, from a crown, relying on cane tip-rooting for propagation, and does not spread vigorously via underground runners. Royalty will usually produce a quarter more fruit per cane than summer red raspberries.
Hardiness zones 4-8
