Sounds like yours are ever-bearing raspberries. Bearing canes can be cut just below where they've finished fruiting and the remaining stem will produce a spring crop of berries, after which the entire cane is cut to the ground.) Prune the canes that are developing this summer back in the winter or very early summer, to force laterals, which will produce next year's crop of berries. Hope this clarifies things for you!
