Raspberry 'Tulameen' is a highly regarded cultivar of the red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) that produces large, sweet and juicy berries on a sturdy and vigorous plant. This deciduous shrub has an upright growth habit and can grow up to 1.5-2 meters in height and 0.6-1 meter in width.
The leaves of 'Tulameen' are dark green and slightly serrated, providing an attractive backdrop to the bright red berries that appear in mid to late summer. The berries are large, with a firm texture and a sweet flavor that is perfect for fresh eating, baking, or making preserves.
'Tulameen' is a primocane variety, which means it produces fruit on the current year's growth.

The plant is also highly disease-resistant, making it a great choice for gardeners who want a reliable and easy-to-grow raspberry cultivar.
When it comes to planting, 'Tulameen' prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. It thrives in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Regular watering is important, especially during the growing season when the plant is producing fruit.
Overall, Raspberry 'Tulameen' is a highly productive and popular cultivar that is favored among raspberry growers and berry enthusiasts alike. Its large, sweet, and juicy berries, combined with its disease resistance and ease of management, make it an excellent choice for any fruit garden.
