Are Raspberries Self Pollinating?

Flowering plants must be pollinated in order to flower and eventually produce fruit. While some plants are capable of pollinated their own flowers (self pollinating), others require external pollination, such as the pollination that bees provide from flower to flower. Knowing which plants self pollinate and which do not is an important part of being a gardener.

So what about raspberries? Are raspberries self pollinating?

Yes, they are!

Raspberry plants are capable of transferring pollen into the flowers of the same plant, with no need for external pollination. This means that they can be planted on their own, and do not necessarily need other plants nearby to pollinate them.
