Hi David
I live in Far North Queensland and my youngberries have been in the ground now for 12 months. They are wonderfully lush and green, throwing runners all over the place, but no sign of fruiting. They have until Christmas to perform or they will go the same way as the logan berries. I will probably replace them with heritage and autumn bliss rasberries which have been performing well.

Cate..have you pruned off the ends of each runner so the vine will grow laterals ? I am told flowers and fruit come on the laterals....also advised to heavy mulch with large stones so the roots experience cooler conditions.
where can I get those types of rasberries?

Thanks Anon
I haven't tried pruning the ends of the runners. I'll give that a go this weekend and see what happens from there. Currently, I have good bark chip mulch on them, I would have thought the stones would have absorbed the heat - do you suggest large stones for for more airation? They are situated in a place that gets full afternoon sun, it can get a little harsh on occasion, but they are well protected from wind.
I bought the rasberries from Daleys Nursery (the owner of this forum), they too were unsure on whether they would grow here, but I have been pleasently suprised. I have 4 vines (2 of each). I wouldn't say they have grown rampently but when fruiting they are giving me a small handfull of sweet tasty berries (5-10) nearly every day. The Heritage grew berries last Nov (I think - lost track of time a bit there). I have since pruned it back and it is regrowing again. The autumn bliss is fruiting now and has been doing so for about the last 4? weeks. Neither vine is particulary good to look at but they are producing! I am keen to see how the second crop performs come Nov again.
Thanks for the advice.

I have 4 youngberry plants from Daley's in now .They have been in for about 5 months and have grown very well .We are cool (up at 200m ),but don't frost .A small scale commercial grower near here ,but in a colder spot gets 200gm per plant per day while they are bearing ...for about 6 weeks .A lot of fruit off her 12 plants .

I'm unsure how to prune but have been told that the fruit forms on the second year wood so to leave everything alone until then , then prune off the fruiting canes after the fruiting is over .

Does this sound correct ?

I just received thiss email from Gardening Australia concerning pruning youngberries ,
"Thank you for contacting Gardening Australia.  Unfortunately Tino didn't have time to dealt with the youngberries this time!  Youngberries are a rubus hybrid so you can treat them in a similar way as blackberries, raspberries, etc.  Canes that have fruited should be cut down to the ground.  Emerging canes can be tied to the lowest support wire, and the canes that grew the previous season which will fruit next season (because they're a biennial plant) can be tied to the top support wire or, if you're not growing them on a trellis, simply tie them in bunches of about 8 (select the thickest canes) and chop them off at about 170-80 cm so they're not too unmanageable.  Feed with a mix of blood and bone and potash at the start of the growing season.  Hope that's useful for you."

Help somebody, is this a youngberry ? Purchased about three years ago in Kyogle they did no good at first planting so I replanted them beside a five foot high retaining wall (they face north) and they have flourished there, sending out long canes of several meters along the ground ( everywhere) ,they are flowering and fruiting (December). Can I build a relatively high trellis ? (my space is limited and I have several plants)
Thank you somebody !

DO NOT PRUNE your youngberries or your raspberries, after fruiting 3-4 years they dies off and new shoots coming up, and new shoots they don't fruit the 1st year but on the 2nd year

Youngberries grow very well in the hot climate with low humidity where I live. Maybe they hate the humidity and do not crop because of that. The very first year I had a huge crop. I asked the guy from the nursery how to prune them and he said you should cut them off at the ground each winter and let them come up again but I have been reluctant to do this. I have just cut off the canes that look terrible and left the rest. They still fruited well this year just before Christmas.

My youngberry is really pissing me off. Looks really healthy, is quite large but refuses to fruit. Have fertilised, seasoled, and watered constantly.

Sternus, I think its just a seasonality thing. Mine fruited well before Xmas. Spring I think. Since then its been rampant, throwing 5m canes/runners out. Have rooted a number of 'divers' to spread around and will cut them back a bit and 'teepee' them to see how they go next spring...

Replying to an antique post here but I am curious the people that say their plants won't fruit is it because they are too healthy & don't need to reseed yet, maybe they need to be stressed a little or patience till they decide reseeding is required.
