Raspberry - Williamette

Anonymous's Edible Fruits

Planted in winter of 2008 and fruited that year from the primacane (small last years cane) that it shipped with. I only started off with 5 canes and expect to get 3 times that amount this year. A summer fruiting variety where you have to leave this years new canes in to fruit next year (and then cut them out). Tastes better than Heritage but not as good as Chilliwack. As with all rasberries- will crop up outside of the area you plant it via growth from the roots

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 not have prickly thorns. (Previously I said it did have thorns- that was a typo)

Update 2012 I get heaps of raspberries through summer into autumn off my patch- pleasantly surprised as to how well these go and the flavour is far superior to shop bought.

I am growing this a in a 45lt growbag in semi-shaded position. The soil was one that I made using sand from the vegetable garden, which in hindsight was a mistake. I will repot these next winter into premium potting mix. Otherwise they are growing ok and floweing. I wasn't sure that the winter would be cold enough to set flowering but it seems to have been.

I haven't had much luck with the raspberries. I repotted them, they grew better but too leggy. I've moved then to a sunny aspect. If they don't perform this season they'll be gone.

Who would have thought raspberry would grow in the Brisbane area! Ended up with the Williamette by default when another order placed could not be provided. The canes provided fruit each day in the first year of planting. So glad I've got it. Also growing Bicentennial from a gardening friend, but still waiting for this provide any crop.

No problems.

Question:

Really have little idea how to look after this plant. It's putting out lots of canes which I think I'm supposed to do something with!

Nice orchard you have. For flavour, if you had to choose one variety, would you go with the Heritage or Williamette?
Caroline1 says... [3271 days 14hrs ago]
Unfortunately my husband planted the 2 types of canes at the same time and didnt note which was in which spot. One of them we didnt really like the flavour much at all and so I pulled it out. The other one is really delicious and bears fruit from December until June although only in small quantities late in the season. The one we pulled out started bearing fruit much later into the summer and continued for the same period into autumn (which fits the description of heritage however the one we kept grew berries from new canes from the ground in the same season which also fits with the description of heritage). Sorry I cant be more help. We have so many canes growing from the initial plant that we bought from Daleys that it didnt matter that we pulled out the one we didnt like much.

still in little pots - I have tried growing these before, and haven't managed to nurse them through the Perth summer, but I LOVE fresh raspberries, and they cost a ridiculous amount in the shops - I got a frame up for them last time, but didn't get the shadecloth and retic on in time...
