Brandywine is a true purple raspberry. It has a large, soft-textured, gorgeous berry with a tart, full flavor. A hybrid between red and black raspberries, its use in jam, jelly, and pies is unsurpassed. The purple color fades to a bright red when baked. Brandywine is used extensively in the fermentation of wine and other spirits. It is less invasive and "stays put" where it is planted, and will not sucker and spread by layering. The thorns are wider spaced and larger than that of a red raspberry, and its canes are very erect and seldom bend over with fruit. It is less hardy than the reds, and needs winter protection in very cold climates. Height varies. Purple. Ripens mid-season. Ever bearing. Hardiness zones 4 to 8.
