I got 12 plants from Costco, each four-pack was 15 bucks, so I spent 45 dollars on my row of raspberries. The varieties are Latham and Jewel. I wasn’t nuts about the characterization of “acceptable flavor” in the Small- and Tree-Fruit Cultivars [pdf] publication from KSU. I guess we’ll see how they taste next summer. I’d say that “acceptable” fresh-picked raspberries ought to beat the heck out of store bought in any event.
