Growing Calendar for Raspberry Autumn Treasure - Primocane
Delivery: Early November to Early May
A rare spine-free variety which makes it easy to pick the tasty sweet fruits from August through to October. As a primocane raspberry variety you will also get fruit in the first year they are planted.
If you have a small garden you can put them into a large container and train them up an obelisk, wigwam or supports which also means the fruit is easier to net and protect from birds. The fruit is large and perfect for desserts and smoothies if the children have not eaten them all first!
Bred by the UK fruit research facility at East Malling, Autumn Treasure has an incredible UK heritage and can handle our weather with aplomb. If you are an organic gardener it also has great resistance to raspberry root rot which in our mind makes it a fantastic all-rounder and one of our best sellers.
When grown in the garden, cropping is from mid August through to mid September and as it is a Primocane variety, you will be picking your first crop in its first year.
Primocane (autumn-fruiting) varieties fruit on canes produced in the current year. After cropping, these should be cut down to ground level to promote the growth of new canes.
This variety is protected by Plant Variety Rights and cannot be propagated even for own use and resold without licence.
The plant looked dead when it arrived - it may well be but we have planted it and hoped for the best!
