Sparse seeds make the berries great for fresh eating, and they also freeze and can well.

This Cumberland type is a black everbearer.
One of life's purest pleasure is a handful of Raspberry Jewel berries straight from the bush! Pure black, juicy-sweet, and with very few seeds, this Cumberland type raspberry has been a favorite forever, and no wonder. It's an everbearing delight that always delivers big crops of scrumptious berries!

The plant reaches about 4 feet high and just 2 feet wide. Very long-lived, it likes plenty of water (especially the first season) and sunshine. It begins bearing in early summer and continues right into fall in most climates, so just about any time you go in the garden in search of berries, ripe ones will be waiting for you!

The fruit is just 1/2-inch in diameter, packed with flavor and juice. It's great for fresh eating, but also holds up well if frozen, and is ideal for canning. You just can't go wrong with Jewel! Zones 3-8.

How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?

For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
