Raspberry - Autumn Britten
The Autumn Britten Raspberry, Rubus 'Autumn Britten', is a sister seedling of Autumn Bliss that has much better fruit firmness and is also a better producer. It ripens 3 weeks before Heritage. The berries are long, conical shaped, with bright red color and good flavor. Autumn Britten has a good upright growth habit. Plants are moderately vigorous, and we recommend planting at 22"-24" in-row spacing.
The berries are versatile and can be used as fresh fruit, in preserves, or in pies and pastries. Raspberries may be grown successfully at an elevation as high as 7,000 feet. They do best in full sun on non-alkaline, fertile loam soil. However, they may be grown in partial shade or under other environmental constraints. Natural protection against strong winter winds are provided in some valleys, but in other areas it is necessary to provide artificial protection during winter months. Although a well-drained soil is essential for success, a sandy soil will need to have plenty of organic matter incorporated in preparation. Raspberries need a plentiful supply of moisture throughout the growing season. Raspberries take little space, live for years and produce crops the second season after planting. Birds also love the fruit, so you may have to share the harvest.
