Golden Raspberries?

    7 responses

Sort:
Pete7 starts with ...
Hi everyone,

I bought some golden raspberry seeds from eBay to try and grow for a bit of fun, and the pictures below are what I've ended up with. I have several types of red raspberry in my garden and what's grown from these seeds looks nothing like my red raspberry canes.

Does anyone have any experience with growing golden/yellow raspberries or can identify what's grown from these seeds?

cheers
Pete

wellllll - Its a weed - Oxalis
Oca has bigger leaves and never seen it flower.
I suggest these came up out of your potting mix and maybe the raspberry are still hidden below - get scissors and remove oxalis leaves carefully. Dont chuck out yet - Give more time or get more seeds and try again?

Ha - yes Clover

You've grown yourself a pot of weeds; clover. These probably grew from the potting mix rather than any seeds you bought.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I sprouted the seeds in jiffy pots filled with seed raising mix before planting in the larger pot, so will cut out the clover and see what if anything is left.

cheers

Hi Pete7. I think you need to cold stratify rasberry seed. Basically you need to mimic what happens in nature, ie the seed spends 3 months of winter in cold damp soil before germinating in spring. If you havent done this, the seed could germinate after this winter. If you planted the seed over spring summer, it woundn't have got enough chill time to sprout yet.

It is also possible the seed was a mix up or a ripoff. It looks like a pretty good clover plant, if it looks like multiple plants, may be from planted seed ?

I had a poke around in the pot today and there was nothing but clover.

Jakfruit etiquette.... the seeds were cold stratified but it appears there was indeed either a mix up or I was ripped off.

cheers
Pete
