Raspberries

Raspberries are the edible fruit of a plant species in the rose family.
There are many types of raspberries — including black, purple and golden — but the red raspberry, or Rubus idaeus, is the most common.

Red raspberries are native to Europe and northern Asia and cultivated in temperate areas worldwide.
These sweet, tart berries have a short shelf life and are harvested only during the Summer and Autumn months. For these reasons, raspberries are best eaten shortly after harvesting,
Protect Raspberries from extreme heat and damaging winds during Summer. Needs a well-drained fertile soil and adequate water during the Summer months. Raspberries require a cold Winter to enable adequate fruit set.
Lightly thin canes in winter as this variety will flower and fruit on the previous season’s growth. Plant 30cm apart. Prefers full sun to part shade and likes weekly watering in summer.
