There may be newer hybrids, but the traditional bushes had biennial canes. They grew during the first season, but didn't fruit. During the second, they set fruit and then died. you are supposed to go out around new and cut down all the dead canes and save the live ones. It is a big bother and I don't do it. I think my harvest suffers a lot from my not doing it.
