Cascade Gold is a new early season gold-fruited,floricane fruiting raspberry cultivar (Rubusidaeus L.) jointly released by WashingtonState University (WSU), Oregon State University,and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It has been evaluated at Puyallup, WA, in plantings from 1988 to 2008. The cross which produced CascadeGold was made in 1979 at the WashingtonState University Puyallup Research and ExtensionCenter (WSU Puyallup) between Malling Delight as the female parent anda pollen parent recorded as SHRI 6820/41. In 1989, the identity of the pollen parent of Cascade Gold was determined to be incorrect(R.J. McNichol, personal communication) and remains unknown.  Cascade Gold  produces HUGE, firm,early-season DELICIOUS fruit with  excellent flavor, retains good flavor even when picked at firm stage. The best flavored berry ever! Zones 5-7. 12 cm pot.

"I planted Cascade Gold early this spring and it has produced about two dozen berries. I have many varieties and I have been comparing them for taste, firmness etc. Cascade is the hands down winner, and in every category. The berries are enormous, firm, a beautiful  GOLDEN color, and the very best excellent tasting. The berries were so large and firm that i thought they would be dry, but they were unbelievably juicy. They deserve more than a five star review,. I will be planting more of this variety..."- One of our best customers said.

    Cascade Gold is a vigorous, healthy plant. I planted it over a month ago and it is already bushy and ha sent up new canes.

    I can always count on Berries Unlimited to send healthy plants. It's easy to see how much pride they take in running their business.

    Thank you.
