When my lax trellising and hungry birds resulted in broken raspberry branches, I placed them in a vase. I figured they would be pretty even if they did not ripen, but it worked! The bonus is these won't be devoured by the birds. The variety, "royalty," is delicious. It is spreading rapidly this year, so I should get many more berries next summer, but I'll have to figure out a support system that keeps out the birds.
