Atherton raspberry - Hi Amanda- fruit is less flavoursome than the European varieties; sweet when allowed to ripen and really 'puff up' and more tart if you pick when small and firm. Our children enjoy then off the bush and on cereal.cheers Karen..2505 days 12hrs

we plant 6 plants each year. Yield is good. We make jam from the calix  after flowering. The flowers are very attractive. Since we learned the trick of using an apple corer to remove the calix from the seed , jam making is much faster!
