This autumn-fruiting raspberry produces heavy crops of large, delicious berries from August until the winter frosts. An excellent choice for a sheltered sunny spot with well-prepared, moderately fertile, well-drained soil.
Care: At the end of autumn, instead of cutting all the canes to the ground, only prune out the canes which fruited. These will grow on next year, fruiting much earlier than usual giving you a summer crop. Next year's spring shoots will emerge as normal to give you your autumn crop of raspberries. As the canes emerge they can be tied onto their supports as normal.
