Your first year shouldn't produce much, if any at all. The second year is when you will start to see fruit production.

Now when to prune depends on if it is summer bearing, fall bearing, or everbearing. This article will give you a good idea of what you should be doing: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/raspberry/pruning-raspberry-bushes.htm
