Pruning Cane Berries - Raspberries & blackberries grow on long stems called canes which don't fruit until second year of growth. After bearing fruit, that cane dies. But new first-year canes develop at the same time, and will bear fruit the following year.Remove 2-year-old canes soon after they finish bearing.
