RASPBERRY - HERITAGE

raspberryBotanical Name: Rubus idaeus x Rubus Hybrids
Description

A primocane variety producing fruit on canes that arise from the ground during one season. Often referred to as low chill since canes do not need chilling to produce flowers. A most sought after variety as it fruits in Autumn thus extending the traditional fruiting period. It has a picking period of 8 - 12 weeks beginning in February.

Question & Answer

I'd like to grow berries such as boysenberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc. I live on the Atherton Tablelands, and we have our Wet season when these berries flower and fruit, ie from November to March. Will they grow in my area, as we can sometimes get frosts in winter? Thank. From: Ravenshoe QLD

You should be able to grow most berries on the cooler parts of Atherton Tablelands. Heritage Raspberry, Youngberry and Boysenberry should be OK. #RaspberryHeritage700 #BerryYoungberry2740 #BerryBoysenberry695

Hello, my heritage raspberry, only 2. Month, in a protected position. There was fruiting shoots between the stalks, i erased them to make the plant stronger. Also, the leaves are dryish, and a bit withered. Gave moderate water. Good mulch, mushroom. | Quentin Dunn - Wamuran, QLD 20-Sep-2018

Raspberry - Heritage (Seedling) 10/10

KitschWitch's Edible Fruits
Update: 2802 days 11hrs

Comments: -

These are one of the best fruits we grow--very tasty, easy to grow and quite a long fruiting season. They taste so much better fresh than frozen, canned or supermarket bought.

We have quite a few varieties of raspberry. They all taste good, but  the Heritage ones have a long fruiting season through autumn (even up to June), but just a few fruits at a time. It's worth growing quite a few Heritage plants. Just buy one to start with though, because they spread like crazy from the roots so by the next spring year you will have 10 plants or so. They can be pruned out if needed and replanted elsewhere and will also grow easily from stem cuttings.

The Heritage variety fruit in their first season (from a spring planting), on the new growth. After fruiting it's best to prune them right back to ground level since those stems won't fruit again. This is easier than pruning summer-fruiting raspberries which fruit on the seond year's growth (so you have to leave the new shoots and cut back only the ones that fruited).

The stems grow fairly tall (2m) and tend to flop over if left. Ours are loosely supported by a nearby mesh fence. you can also tie nearby stems to a tall stake. This works really well and is flexible.


I estimate .5kg of fruit per plant per year--one plant = one stem. Our huge patch arose from one original plant though!

amazing, two crops a year. I would never have believed I could grow Raspberries in Brisbane. Over 1kg of fruit dec-thru-april. Morning sun and part shade rest of day. 

Saw fly? in leaves and some small brown-black larvae in some of the fruit, watch for ant activity to find these. 

I usually freeze the excess picked each day in a freezer bag with a little sugar, really intensifies the flavour and a nice treat on a hot Brisbane day

Update: 2407 days 4hrs

They are in a bed surrounded by concrete, so they can't escape. I have added another variety called Autumn Bliss.

Raspberries fruit on canes produced the previous season, which look exhausted when they have finished fruiting. Prune at ground level and tie in fresh, vigorous new canes, which will flower and fruit the following season. Remove dead or weak shoots anytime.
Keep mulch away from the base of stems. This reduces fungal diseases.
They benefit greatly from a sheltered site with shade from the afternoon sun.
Condition neutral or mildly alkaline soil by applying iron chelates during late winter. This also supplements iron.
At bud burst, apply two teaspoonfuls of Epsom salts and an equal amount of sulfate of potash to 4.5L of water, and water in around plants. This improves fruit flavour and disease resistance.

I bought this from Bunnings and planted it into a 45cm grow bag. It has fruited last year with a couple of raspberries.  I made my own soil mix , which includes sand from the vegie patch and I don't think this has been very good. I will repot next year in premium potting mix. I cut them back in winter to ground level and they are shooting well.  I've located my raspberries in a side terrace where they get the sun in the middle of the day for a few hours then shade morning and afternoon. They seem to like it there.

I bought this Heritage variety last year. I never liked the store bought raspberries. My sister-in law suggested growing my own as the berries you get fresh are quiet sweet tasting.  I tried it and absolutely loved it. I got around 2 punnets from one plant in the first year of growing. The plant is quiet easy to grow and fruit. They are so easy to multiple! I grow mine in pots and noticed this that the roots have grown through the holes at the bttom of the pots and have sprouted new suckers into the ground. The ground around it is muddy and full of gravels, only weeds ever tried to grow there...These raspberries are a welcoming surprise.

I did not find pest to be an issue with raspberries. One issue I had was with strong wind tearing up the leaves. Luckly this winter, strong wind wasn't a problem. The other thing that was an issue was the hot summer. Raspberries tend to not like hot weather and I had to remember to water the plants more often during this season.

Don't taste as good as the summer fruiting varieties (drier fruit produced in my climate) removed to be replaced with Chilliwack and Williamette (Which I already have growing as well)

 

Planted in winter of 2008 and fruited that year. I only started off with 5 canes and expect to get 3 times that amount this year. An autumn fruiting variety that needs to be cut off at ground level after fruiting finishes in late autumn/early winter. In my climate (hot summers, sandy soils) does not do as well as the earlier fruiting varieties as the soil tends to dry out so the berries become drier and less sweet (it's easier to keep the varieties that fruit in sprin/early summer moist).

However- the late berries that appear in autumn (during first autumn rains) do improve in juiciness and quality- and having this variety does extend my cropping period

Does prefer some shelter from afternoon/hot sun. This is planted in the coolest/wettest part of my garden- with a retaining wall and fence to the north, shorter wall and fence to the east and plum tree planted to the south. The grass in this area used to get moss growing on it in winter.

Lots and lots of organic matter, bentonite clay added (to sandy soil) to keep them moist. This variety does have prickly thorns.
