Some of the raspberry cultivars recommended for your gardening region include:
'Caroline' is a red fruiting variety with a long cone shape, large size and high yielding.

'Anne' is a golden primocane-fruiting variety with conic shape, large fruit size, and very good flavor. It is slightly earlier than 'Heritage', but is low yielding.

'Polana' is an everbearing type of red raspberry that is up to three weeks earlier and has larger fruit size than 'Heritage'. The berry has good flavor and cohesiveness.

'Autumn Bliss' has fine-flavored, firm fruit; it is also resistant to powdery mildew.

'Josephine' is a fall bearing red raspberry and has very large, cohesive fruit with great flavor. The fruit ripens over a long season.
