Why are my raspberry plants not producing fruit?

If the one-year-old canes are cut off or die backduring winter, your raspberries will not producefruit because you have no two-year-old canes left in thepatch. A twist on this system is that of everbearingraspberries. Red raspberries are less likely to bendover, root into the soil, and form a new plant.
