Can Raspberries Grow Near Black Walnuts?

Black walnut (Juglans nigra) trees release a soil toxin called juglone. Many juglone-sensitive plants will not grow properly under--or close to--these trees. Red raspberries occasionally experience wilting or leaf yellowing near black walnuts. Juglone-tolerant black raspberries, however, remain healthy near them.
