Grandeur is a raspberry variety which produces large, conical-shaped berries of a light-red colouration. The flavour is good, and the fruit is firm.
The variety is adapted to the climate of central coastal California, and is known for it’s autumn-bearing primocane production. It is therefore a useful variety for extending the harvest season.
Ripening & Quality: When purchasing Grandeur raspberries, the berries should appear firm with no juice or signs of collapse.
