There are two categories of Raspberries, the common raspberry, which ripens in early to midsummer, and the so called ever bearing Raspberry.
Unlike ever bearing Strawberries which produce fruit continuously over the summer, the ever bearing Raspberry produces an early-summer crop on the previous season's growth and a fall crop on the current season's growth. Raspberries are a valuable asset in home gardens because Raspberry fruit is fragile and perishable, which prohibits the shipping of fresh berries.
A healthy Raspberry plant will produce good berry crops for 10 years or more before it will need replacement. Raspberry plants grow best in northern climates where the spring is a long, slow warming process. Raspberries need full sun for the best berry production. They should be planted in rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil that has been generously supplemented with compost and well-rotted manure. Raspberry plants must not be allowed to dry out during their flowering and fruiting seasons.
