The Wyoming Black Raspberry, a cultivar of Rubus occidentalis, is known for its exceptional fruit production and hardiness. This deciduous shrub typically reaches a height and spread of 3 to 4 feet. It is well-suited to a variety of climates, being hardy in zones 3 to 8.

Optimal growing conditions for the Wyoming Black Raspberry include well-drained, fertile soils with a pH slightly on the acidic side. It thrives in full sun, which promotes better fruiting, but can tolerate partial shade. Consistent moisture is important, particularly during fruit development, but the soil should not be waterlogged.

The Wyoming Black Raspberry has large, flavorful black raspberries, which ripen in mid to late summer. The berries are excellent for fresh eating, jams, jellies, and baking. This cultivar was selected for its large berry size, sweet flavor, and good disease resistance.

Originating from the United States, the 'Wyoming' cultivar has become popular in home gardens and commercial plantations for its fruit quality and ease of cultivation. In addition to its fruit, this plant offers ornamental value with its white flowers in spring and attractive foliage, which turns shades of red and purple in the fall. The plant's canes are biennial, with fruit produced on second-year wood, making annual pruning important for maintaining health and productivity.
