Autumn Bliss - Late Season Raspberry

Autumn Bliss raspberry canes carry the latest raspberries of the year. Cropping slowly in August, Autumn Bliss picks up the pace in September. In Indian summers, raspberries can still be picked in the first week of October. One tends to think of raspberries as a summer berry, but this variety allows you to pick heavy crops of autumn soft fruit as well.

The Autumn Bliss raspberry cane is short, sturdy and spiny. It needs little support, so it is generally not necessary to grow it on horizontal wires unless your soft fruit garden is in a particularly windy spot. If support is needed a stout stick or cane for each plant and twine around the branches about 50 cm off the ground will do very well.

Raspberries are classified as early, mid-season, late and autumn fruiting raspberries (like Autumn Bliss) depending on when the bulk of their crop is ready for picking. A little like roses, raspberries produce a first, large flush of fruit - about 50% of the total in the first 2-4 weeks of fruiting followed by much slower production for the rest of their season. To have a continuous supply, therefore, it is necessary to have some of each type and Autumn Bliss is an ideal late raspberry for the job. All autumn fruiting raspberry canes are best planted with about 60cms between plants in each row and with 60cms between the rows. All our Autumn Bliss are supplied as bare root raspberry canes and so should be planted between November and March each year. When planting it is important to remember that these are very shallow rooted plants so bareroot raspberry canes should be planted with their roots just under the surface. Deep planting kills them. Incorporate plenty of well rotted organic matter before planting and try to walk between the rows as little as possible afterwards. Be sure to water well in April and May if there is not plenty of rain and again in July to help the fruit swell.
