The only fruit we eat here are berries, and predominantly raspberries. I just started gardening last year and would really like to grow my own raspberries.

I just watched a video MIGardener put out yesterday on youtube regarding raspberries.  He suggests the sprawling type variety and I think that's what I'd like.   I can start with just one plant and it will multiply quickly.

I am just wondering which would be the best one for zone 7A for Tulsa, OK.  I'd like the one that yields well, is disease resistant, and grows in the heat and humidity of Oklahoma.

Can anyone recommend a particular one?

I've had many failures in 7b in KY. Most were the small starts from box-stores planted directly in the ground. I was given an unknown variety (possibly Heritage) and they all did ok the first year, then gradually all but one died. A local guy told me they cannot tolerare full sun (even though the packages say so). It made sense because the one that survived was the only one partially shaded. So now I'm trying some in more shaded areas. I tried a Fall Gold planted directly this spring, and it is barely hanging on. I also bought a Killarney and started it in a pot and it is growing like crazy and has plenty of berries on it. I think it's a good idea to start small ones in a pot here, and I'm thinking the Kilarney may be the way I try to mostly go.
