The fruit is very decorative due to its bright orange-red colour. They are also delicious, with sweet, soft flesh. The shrubs are very slow growing so they are perfect for growing in ornamental pots. They fruit from a young age, starting in their first or second year. This delicious fruit shows great potential for the exotic fruit and bush food markets due to the high quality of the fruit. They grow well in sunny or shaded positions requiring well drained soil, extra water and fertiliser will help to speed up it growth a little.

Raspberry - Atherton

$21.90 ($19.75-$21.90 choose a size)

Native to the highlands of far North Queensland, this raspberry is a sweet red-orange berry that grows on an upright suckering, sprawling ground cover with cane-like stems. It is delicious eaten fresh. Their popularity means they are often on supermarket shelves. The taste is milder than the European raspberry. The plant is very resilient to warmer growing conditions and can produce up to 3 kg per plant. It does need some management so it won't take over the garden, grow it where the suckers can be mowed over, or alternatively grow it in a large pot.
