Tulameen raspberry plant is a floricane fruiting raspberry that is extremely popular cultivar among fresh market growers.  It has large fruit, with an excellent, somewhat unique, flavor.  Because of its large size, it can be difficult to machine harvest.  Starts to ripen with Meeker, but has a longer season that can overlap with early primocane fruiting cultivars.  Susceptible to phytophthora root rot and slow to become infected with raspberry bushy dwarf virus.
