Like Double Gold, Crimson Night was bred by Dr. Courtney Weber at Cornell University. Crimson Night has dark red raspberries. The canes are red and the leaves are green with a purple tinge. It is a fall-bearing variety that is described as delicious.
Last Spring (2016), I planted Crimson Night in an Earth Box like I did with Double Gold. I was able to harvest a few berries in September (2016).
The berries are larger than Double Gold. I think the flavor is similar to Bushel & Berry’s Raspberry Shortcake (formerly Brazelberries Raspberry Shortcake), which tastes like fruit punch. However, the June berries from Raspberry Shortcake were bigger than Crimson Night’s berries.
Crimson Night is a beautiful colored plant and berry. If you like the unique fruit-punch taste of Raspberry Shortcake, then Crimson Night would be a good follow up variety for the fall. I’ll be reporting more about this variety in the Summer.
