Fall Gold Raspberry
Rubus idaeus var. strigosus 'Fall Gold'
|Description||A rare, exciting self-fertile gold raspberry with the same deliciously sweet taste of red varieties, and the ability to produce two crops each season. After a late summer to fall harvest, a second crop arrives the following spring on the same canes. Excellent fresh or for preserves and pies. The warm yellow berries brighten the garden. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Spring and Midsummer|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches up to 4 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|
|Care||Provide fertile, mildly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. After harvest, prune to ground older canes that have fruited, leaving one-year-old canes to produce next season's crop. Train newer canes on a trellis.|
|Lore||Fall Gold is a primocane type berry, meaning it blooms and fruits on first-year wood. Primocane varieties are often referred to as "everbearing" because they produce two crops on each biennial cane (unless pruned otherwise). The fall crop comes on current-season canes, at the top 1/3 of the canes. After overwintering, and if not pruned, a second crop will be produced in late spring to early summer at the bottom 2/3 of the canes. If a single but heavier crop is desired, all canes may be annually pruned to the ground before growth begins in spring. The new canes will produce fruit in late summer to fall of the same season.|
