Interpretive Summary: 'Kokanee' is a new fall-bearing/primocane-fruiting red raspberry ("everbearing") from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture–Agricultural Research Service breeding program in Corvallis, OR released in cooperation with the Oregon State Agricultural Experiment Station. 'Kokanee' is a high-yielding cultivar that produces large, firm fruit that are bright-red-colored and have very good, sweet flavor. The cultivar should be widely adapted to wherever primocane-fruiting raspberries are grown and has looked promising in trials as a wholesale, fresh market berry produced in tunnels in northern hemisphere, off season market regions (e.g. Mexico, Spain).

Technical Abstract: 'Kokanee' is a new primocane-fruiting red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture–Agricultural Research Service (USDA–ARS) breeding program in Corvallis, OR released in cooperation with the Oregon State Agricultural Experiment Station. 'Kokanee' is a high-yielding cultivar that produces large, firm fruit that are bright-red-colored and have very good, sweet flavor. The cultivar should be widely adapted to wherever primocane-fruiting raspberries are grown and has looked promising in trials as a wholesale, fresh market berry produced in tunnels in northern hemisphere, off season market regions (e.g. Mexico, Spain). An application for a U.S. plant patent (Appl. No. 14/999,027) has been submitted.
