Tulameen - Mid Season Raspberry Bush
Tulameen raspberries are bright, glossy fruit that are resistant to wet weather. Their quality, flavour and heavy cropping make Tulameen raspberry plants the best of the late cropping summer raspberries. They start producing fruit in mid-July carry on well into August.

Raspberries - which we send out as bare-rooted canes are generally categorised as early, mid-season, late - like Tulameen - or autumn fruiting depending on when their yield peaks. Raspberries tend to have a first, heavy flush of fruit about half the season's total in the first few weeks of fruiting. Thereafter the raspberries crop much more slowly. To get a steady crop through the raspberry season, which can run from June to October it is advisable to plant some raspberries from each group. Tulameen raspberry canes should be planted with about 40-50cms between plants and 1.5-2 metres between rows.
How to Prune Summer 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 only carry a few berries in the summer following planting and 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.
