The Prime-Ark Freedom Black Raspberry plant is a popular choice for home gardeners due to its delicious fruit and hardy nature. Here are some general descriptions and planting instructions for the Prime-Ark Freedom Black Raspberry plant:


  • Plant Type: The Prime-Ark Freedom Black Raspberry is a deciduous perennial plant that produces sweet and juicy black raspberries.

  • Fruit Characteristics: The fruit of this raspberry plant is medium-sized and has a rich, sweet flavor. They are typically dark purple to black when fully ripe.

  • Growth Habit: This plant has an erect growth habit and can reach a height of 3 to 4 feet.

  • Thornless: One of the key features of the Prime-Ark Freedom variety is that it is thornless, making it easier to harvest the fruit without getting pricked.

  • Fruiting Season: It produces two crops of fruit each year, with the first crop appearing on the previous year's canes (primocanes) in early summer and the second crop on the current year's canes (floricanes) in late summer to early fall.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Choose a Suitable Location: Select a sunny location in your garden with well-draining soil. Black raspberries thrive in full sun but can tolerate partial shade.

  2. Prepare the Soil: Prepare the soil by adding organic matter like compost or well-rotted manure. Ensure that the soil pH is between 5.5 and 6.5, which is ideal for raspberry plants.

  3. Spacing: Space the Prime-Ark Freedom Black Raspberry plants about 2 to 3 feet apart in rows, with rows spaced approximately 8 feet apart.

  4. Planting Depth: Dig a hole deep enough to accommodate the root system of the plant. Plant the raspberry canes at the same depth they were in their nursery containers.

  5. Support System: Consider installing a trellis or support system to keep the canes upright as they grow.

  6. Watering: Water the newly planted canes thoroughly to settle the soil around the roots. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, especially during dry spells.

  7. Mulch: Apply a layer of mulch, such as straw or wood chips, around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

  8. Pruning: Prune the primocanes (first-year canes) to about 3 to 4 feet in height during the dormant season. This encourages branching and a stronger structure.

  9. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth begins and again in late spring.

  10. Harvesting: Be patient as it may take a year or two for the plants to establish and produce a substantial crop. Harvest the ripe berries when they easily come off the plant.

  11. Winter Care: In colder climates, protect the canes from winter cold by mulching around the base of the plants.

Prime-Ark Freedom Black Raspberry plants can provide you with delicious berries for years to come if properly cared for. Regular maintenance, such as pruning and proper watering, will help ensure a bountiful harvest.
