Joan J - Late Season Raspberry Bushes

Joan J raspberries are the latest and best "primocane" or autumn fruiting raspberry. These bushes make their fruit on the current year's growth as opposed to stems from the year before.

Joan J raspberry canes begin cropping at the very end of July and then fruits through to the first frosts in October. Joan J raspberries are bigger and (in our opinion) taste better than Autumn Bliss. They freeze really well, without the increase in acidity that is often found with other varieties.

Raspberries carry a first large fruiting - about 50% of the total in the first 2-4 weeks after they begin fruiting, followed by a much steadier yield for the remainder of their season. So if you want to pick raspberries from June to October you will need to have some early, some mid season, some late fruiting and some autumn raspberry canes. Joan J does the last bit better than any other.

Like all autumn fruiting raspberries Joan J needs little support, and unless it is in a windy spot it does not need to be tied to horizontal wires. Autumn fruiting raspberries are best planted with about 60cms between plants in all directions.

Joan J are supplied bare rooted and are certified raspberry plants grown from virus tested parent material in the UK.

How to Prune Autumn Fruiting Raspberries

Please note that in line with general practice, all our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60 cms. Summer fruiting raspberries may therefore bear a very few berries in summer following planting but their first full fruiting season will be in the year after. Autumn fruiting raspberries will fruit much better in their first year than their summer fruiting cousins.
