Hi, I am growing them in Brisbane. They have plenty of fruit at the moment, and a lot of new canes. I find them very easy to grow. They will spread quickly so need to keep them under control. I bought two plants from Daleysfruit less than a year ago. The fruits are nice and sweet, they are however very different from traditional rasberry.

I grew a variety of native raspberry (I don't think it was Atherton, but it was one of the many native raspberries) in Sydney and it grew like the clappers, through claggy bought soil and up into the almost pure sand underneath.

I'm trying to persuade one remaining sucker from that plant to take in Tarago, NSW (south of Goulburn - frosty winters, hot dry summers), because I have no doubt of its ability to cope with the clay we're on. Frankly, I think the frost will only keep it vaguely under control! It's essentially the blackberry of Australia. I don't personally think you'll have an issue in Adelaide :)

I am living in Ipswich, near Brisbane.
My Raspberries are not fruiting. They are atherton (I think - thorns point down).
There are heaps of canes and it is as the others said growing like crazy. The first year I got a good crop, but the last 2 years have been nothing. It looks like they fruit around September, so this year I am going to give them heaps of potash a month or so before, and see what happens. If there still is no fruit I will have to poison it, as it is only a thorny weed if it does not fruit.

Does any-one else have any suggestions to get these fruiting?
