Origin & Breeding History: 'DrisRaspFive' originated from a controlled cross between the proprietary varieties 'Maravilla' (female parent) and 'DrisRaspFour' (male parent). The cross was conducted in Santa Cruz, California in April 2002. 'DrisRaspFive' was selected from the seedling population in August 2003 based on fruit colour and percentage of primocane fruit. 'DrisRaspFive' was asexually propagated in Santa Cruz, California and underwent propagation and continued testing in Kent, United Kingdom from 2005 to 2013.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'DrisRaspFive' was conducted in Chilliwack, British Columbia during the 2018 growing season. The plots were planted in the spring of 2017 in a randomized complete block design (RCBD). Each variety consisted of 4 replicates with 3 plants per replicate for a total of 12 plants of each variety. Plants were spaced approximately 76 centimetres apart within rows and 3 metres between rows.
