Bababerry Raspberry - Rubus idaeus 'Bababerry'
This variety works in coastal areas of Southern California (and elsewhere) provided the soil is amended with peat, loam, organic material, and fed rose or azelea food to keep the soil acidic. Excellent taste. Grow in a raised bed to keep underground runners / suckers from invading the rest of your property.
