Honey Queen was introduced by Robert Erskine from Alberta’s Rocky Mountain House in 1966. It is the hardiest of the yellow raspberries. It has good-sized, aromatic berries that have a mild but entirely different flavour than the red berries. The berries are considered soft, and poorly suited to freezing and processing, but are excellent fresh. A unique variety developed by Mr. Robert Erskin of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. The parentage is a cross between "Herman" and old standard red raspberry and a wild raspberry. Honey Queen produces yellow, well armed canes with an arching habit and many laterals, rarely over 4ft in height. The season begins in mid-July with beautiful amber-golden colored fruit, and lasts about 3 weeks. While Honey Queen was not a favorite with out commercial pickers due to the rasping thorns, the color and unique flavor made them a big hit with the kids and other connoisseurs of these summer gems. A treasure from the collection of Clayton Berg, Helena, MT. Honey Queen is very winter hardy, definitely of gourmet quality and highly recommended anywhere in Montana.
