Coho is a new floricane fruiting red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) from the U.S. Coho’ is named after the salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch Walbaum) that is renowned for its brilliant red body coloration and late spawning runs. ‘Coho’ was selected in 1985 from a cross between ‘Lewis’ and ORUS 520-48 and tested as ORUS 958-10 Dept. of Agriculture–Agricultural Research Service (USDA–ARS) breeding program in Corvallis, Ore., released in cooperation with the Oregon State Agricultural Experiment Station, the Washington State Univ. Agricultural Research Center, and the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station. ‘Coho’ is high-yielding and late-ripening, and produces large, bright red, very firm fruit that separates easily from the receptacle. The cultivar is best suited for fresh markets, although it has been reported to be excellent when individually quickly frozen. The ‘Coho’ ripening season is later than ‘Tulameen’. It produces large fruit. The fruits are attractive and conical in shape. Drupelets are consistent in size and shape, giving the fruit a very uniform appearance and reflecting good drupelet fertility. The fruit is bright red. The fruit flavor was rated excellent. Fruits are similar to ‘Tulameen’ in firmness. The combination of firmness, flavor, and bright red, non-darkening color suggests that ‘Coho’ should be excellent for the fresh market. Height: 4-6 ft.
