Rubus Idaeus Erika Raspberry Bushes

Erika Autumn fruiting raspberries are the wonder women of the raspberry world. It is a primocane meaning that Erika fruits on new wood every year. However, pruned correctly, it will also fruit on last year's canes giving you two distinct cropping periods. The fruits veer between orange and red and are really large. The small drupelets (techspeakl term for the tiny individual fruits that cling onto the white core that makes up the raspberry!) hold well together so that the fruit is firm and retains its shape, never becoming mushy, giving it fantastic life post picking and good freezing qualities. The taste is rounded and sweet with a complex fruity flavour and lots of juice.  A brilliant addition to our range of raspberry canes for sale.

One for the Fruit Cage

Probably. In fact, if you have only one raspberry this is THE one for the fruit cage because Erika can fruit twice so you can be picking in July and again in September-October. We don't imagine that you will have any difficulty in coming up with creative ways to use your raspberries - simply with cream and a swirl of honey or Greek yoghurt for the virtuous, in uncooked jams, dipped in chocolate, or just to pop into glasses of Pimms or prosecco. And if you have too many, freeze them on trays before you bag them up so that you have frozen fruit for smoothies, coulis and so forth. Raspberries are easy to grow and generally do not need spraying. The only thing you will need to add to your kitchen garden is a permanent support for the canes in the form of post and wires and you will need to net the fruits otherwise the birds will take their share. That may sound like a lot of work but the canes last for about 10 years and get bigger and more productive as time passes and the taste of a home-grown raspberry is an utterly different experience from the chilled, supermarket version. Site your fruit cage anywhere in the garden bar north facing and remember to mulch your raspberries with a layer of well-rotted organic muck every year to keep the nutrient levels of your soil high.
