Youngberry plant won&amp;#039;t bear fruit

    6 responses

JennyB1971 starts with ...
This youngberry plant was bought several years ago but has never produced berries. It does flower prolifically (and beautifully). I'm wondering if it needs more fertiliser or another treatment. I've tried a little bit of Thrive but am afraid to over-fertilise it. It's in a good position for morning sunlight and in a large terracotta pot. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Jenny, my Young Berry has fruited prolifically every time its rained for a few days or if I water it well here in Sydney.

I don't feed mine, I've got 1 grown at my home & 1 at parents place, the one at my place has no soure of nutrition other than the inital sheep manure & mulch I put when I first planted it in Spring 2018, the one at the parents no added fertiliser at all but it's planted just outside the large chicken coop which is probably fertilising it too.

Hi Jenny, my problem also, second year of flowering but fruit does not develop. Cut it back last year, thought it might be fungii so sprayed with copper fungicide during leafing. heaps of flowers but other berry plants in garden going gangbusters except the Youngberry.

Hi Mike, that's odd, I guess I've been lucky as mine gave lots of fruit within 2 months from receiving it in the mail & I've even taken the self rooted plants out & planted in separate spots all flowering with very large fruit this year with all the beautiful tropical rain & weather we've had. I think these plants are grafted so make sure your plant is thornless & not spikey.

If the flowers are coming from plants with thorns it might be the seedling part of the plant, do you have clearer photos of the stem?

Ive had this same problem too. And I have just now stumbled upon a small bit of info. So I had to share.

Youngberries fruit of 2nd year wood.

If it doesnt fruit this year, do not prune! Instead, tie all those canes loosely to one side and then when new growth occurs tie them in a different bundle.

I am going to do that this year and see what happens!

Youngberry is a floricane, it means it only bear fruits on the second year wood. After fruiting you needs to cut and remove all the canes that already produces fruits but not a new canes. In other word first year you don’t have fruits. Second year you will have fruits on 2 years old cane and third year you will have fruits on second year cane etc. during fruiting season you should apply fertiliser high in potassium such as blood and bone or potassium sulphate and plenty of water. Cheers.
