Red raspberry plants grow very well in Nebraska. The Boyne red raspberry bush has been researched extensively by Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, and will survive the extreme temperatures of Nebraska winters. The other New York researched red raspberries that are ever bearing and the taste of the berry is tart, with a sweet balanced flavor. Black raspberry plants are not cold hardy enough for planting in Nebraska soils. Blackberries, including the thornless blackberry and the thorny blackberry cultivars, are prone to winter freezing and are not recommended for planting by the University of NE that is located in Lincoln, Nebraska. Blueberry plants, too, are iffy generally, because most of the commercial blueberry bushes cant stand the frigid winters in NE. Most important in growing a blueberry bush is the soil profile requiring a very acid soil profile of 4.5 to 5.5 and a Nebraska home gardener should strongly consider amending the soil for container grown blueberry plants inside the home in winter and then maintain the proper outside the house after the temperatures warm up in Nebraska.
Red Mulberry trees are native berry trees for Nebraska, but many tasty red, black and white mulberry tree cultivars are available to buy from nurseries online that produce juicy, flavorful mulberries.
