Q.Is There A Difference Between A Raspberry Cane And A Raspberry Sucker?

Is there a difference between raspberry canes and raspberry suckers? If I transplant a cane, will it turn into a plant, rather than dieing after it fruits(after it’s 2 years old)?

It will produce a sucker. Established canes are still alive at the root zone. It is easier to take an established sucker, since it is faster. It bypasses the need for the established cane to produce a sucker that will go on to fruit.
