Raspberry (Eng.), Framboos (Afr.)
Autumn Bliss is a superb raspberry producing making delicious fruit. The fruit ripens from late Summer until the first frosts on primocanes (new growth) if the plant is cut back in autumn or before spring. Then it makes fruit on current year´s wood. If the old canes are not cut they will set fruit early in the season, in early summer (December to January). You can also have fruit from December until April on well established, strong plants if you cut back half of the old canes leaving the other half on the plant. The plant will set fruit on both old and new wood then. The fruit is medium-sized to large, sweet and aromatic, burgundy red in colour. It grows about 1.5 – 2m tall, the canes may need support. Provide humus-rich soil for best results and good drainage.
