Really a semi-commercial grower. Very happy with the Niwot. Grows well, firm berries, ,prolific and because its an early bearer, it hasn't been bothered by spotted wing dropsophilia and Japanese beetles.TJ C.
Have been growing these for about 8 years, when ever they were first released. The second year I had the problem of no taste, but after that they have been producing great every year for the whole summer. The flavor is great. I do have some double berries but not a big problem.TFal
Pete did a great service to us by developing this everbearing variety. Sorry he has passed.
Planted these Niwot berry's last spring after the frost. Initial growth was slow, but I watered them throughout the very dry summer and the plants grew to over 4' canes. Canes are very small diameter (less than a pencil) and there was no fruit the first year at all. I have pruned the canes back to 3 feet in length and am hoping for some fruit this year.Chuck
Niwot Yields were incredible Compare to other varieties in pints per plant. Large well branched kanes on second year plants. TastyDon
had high hopes for a fall complement to the mac black and jewel I raise and sell early and midseason. the plants all survived and produced well both early and late crop. however the berries were totally tasteless. so much so that I could not risk selling them at the market. such a shame. bush hogging them and plowing up the roots this fall.JAMES A
These raspberries had a high yield the second year. Colorado had a very hot summer and the plants survived and produced very well.Treva H
