Autumn Bliss Raspberry Bushes

Autumn Bliss raspberry canes carry some of the latest raspberries of the year; one tends to think of raspberries as a summer fruit, but this variety really does squeeze out a decent crop into the foothills of autumn.
The first fruit trickle in slowly in August, picking up the pace through September and then winding down by the first half of October, potentially lasting until the first frosts; depending on the weather that year, growers in the South sometimes have their last fruit in early November! 
The fruit are large, with a nice firm texture that keeps its shape after being frozen. The flavour is a decent blend of sweetness and acidity, less aromatic than the best summer fruiting varieties.

Growing Autumn Bliss

The canes are short and sturdy, which need no support in sheltered areas, and are ideal for windy sites, where a stout stick is sufficient for each plant: simply twine the branches around the stick at about 50cm.

Spacing Autumn Bliss: Autumn fruiting raspberry canes are best planted with 60cm between plants along the row, and 60cm between rows. 

Raspberries are greedy feeders that require rich, moist soil to thrive, and like almost all fruit, prefer full sun.

Did You Know?

This Kentish variety was bred at the East Malling Research Station by Elizabeth Keep in 1974 and first sold in 1984.

Please note that in line with general practice, all our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60cm. With Autumn fruiting raspberries such as Autumn Bliss, this should be cut down to ground level in late winter.    


Planting Instructions

Autumn Bliss raspberries should be planted with about 60cms between plants and 60 cms between rows. When planting it is important to remember that these are very shallow rooted plants so bareroot raspberry canes should be planted with their roots 2-3" 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.
