Black raspberries (and raspberries in general) do not yield as much fruit as blackberries, so you might expect 50 quarts per 50 foot row; these bushes require full sun and a well drained soil and are usually planted about three feet apart in rows about eight feet apart. For a detailed description and diagrams of the necessary pruning, training and tieing, you might find the following website helpful:
