Rubus idaeus 'Autumn Treasure'PBR
Raspberry 'Autumn Treasure' PBR - 3 litres
Rubus idaeus 'Autumn Treasure' (Raspberry) is a recently bred variety with exceptional disease-resistance. It produces good crops of large, firm fruit with a good flavour, ripening from August through October. Also considered one of the most successful primocane varieties for producing an additional crop in early summer via selective pruning. The canes are thornless and self-supporting. All raspberries are self-fertile. Height of canes around 1.8m.
Container grown plants can be planted throughout the year. Bare-root plants are available from November to March. Plant 45cm apart in well-drained, preferably slightly acid soil. Ripens best in full sun, but light shade is acceptable. Shelter from strong winds is essential. No support is needed for the sturdy canes. Pruning of autumn fruiting raspberries is very simple: cut down all canes to ground level in February. For 'double cropping', cut a proportion of canes after fruiting in autumn by half only. Cut these to the base after fruiting in early summer.
