Here at Montavons Berries we grow one variety of raspberries called Willamette.  This late June/early July-bearing variety produces abundant crops of extremely large, dark red berries. Firm and juicy, with a hint of tartness, they are delicious eaten fresh and great for freezing.  We chose Willamette raspberries for flavor rather than shelf life.  These berries are sold off the farm on the day they are picked and are always available for u-pick in season.  Willamettes that don't get sold on the day they are picked get frozen.
