Bay Laurel Nursery generally carries bababerris-- the description shows it
with a patent #--

Their description --Extra large red raspberries up to 1" long. Fine flavor,
excellent for all uses. Hardy to 0 degrees F, but does well in warmest
climates of the USA. Large crop in June and a smaller one in fall. Patent
No. 4732.  


I thought the berry was originally discovered in the mountains near Palm
Springs California-- but cannot find that information.
