Malina Bryanskoe Divo is a versatile variety that is suitable for both personal consumption and sale. The fruits are large in size, excellent taste, and also retain their marketable appearance for five days after harvest. But when growing a crop, you need to know several important features.
Bryansk Divo - a variety of fruitful remontant raspberries
Bryansk Marvel is a relatively young variety obtained by pollination of the interspecific large-fruited form 47–18–4. In 2001, this raspberry was recognized as a separate species. The authors are breeders Evdokimov S. N. and Kazakov I. V. The bush is semi-sprawling, grows to medium size and reaches 1.5–1.8 m. Consists of 5–7 thick shoots, which are covered with a small number of thorns. The leaves are large, dark green in color, with jagged edges.
According to the botanical classification, the fruits of raspberries are drupes, but they also have another, everyday, name - berries.
The berries are red, have an oblong conical shape, reaching 4 cm. Their average weight is 5-6 g. But some fruits grow up to 11 g. On a five-point tasting scale, they gain 4 points. The taste is sweet, with a slight sourness. Two fruit branches grow from each node of the shoot. This distinguishes the variety from other varieties of raspberries.
The Bryansk diva is characterized by long-term fruiting: from the end of August to the first frost. This feature is inherent in remontant varieties, which yield a crop already in the first year of planting. In ordinary raspberries, fruiting occurs on two-year-old shoots. Another feature of these varieties is the ability to obtain two harvests. Remontant raspberries ripen both on annual and last year's shoots.
Important! Gardeners do not recommend this method. The first crop, which ripens on two-year-old shoots, weakens the bush. This slows down the second fruiting, which is more valuable.
Bryansk marvel is distinguished by large berries
The advantages of the variety include:
The disadvantage of the Bryansk diva is its weak resistance to diseases. This variety is especially susceptible to fungal infections.
The best time to plant raspberries is autumn.
Raspberry prefers sandy loam and loamy soils, it is not recommended to plant a crop on heavy soils... Also, this plant reacts negatively to a lack of light. Therefore, you should choose a site that is not shaded by buildings or tall crops. The location of groundwater closer than 1.5 m from the soil level is unacceptable.
Important! Raspberries should not be planted after potatoes, strawberries, or tomatoes. These cultures share common diseases.
The root system of the bushes is finally formed in September. The most suitable time for planting is October, but you can plant a crop in the spring - before bud break (March - early April). They begin to prepare the soil in a month. If planting is planned in the spring, this can be done 2 weeks before the scheduled date or in the fall.
The Bryansk miracle is planted in a trench way
Important! It is not recommended to use fertilizers containing nitrogen when planting, this will slow down the rooting of the shrub.
Raspberry pruning is done three times a year
During the first growing season, raspberry seedlings grow shoots, on which fruits ripen by August. The stems should not be left for next year, as they can be attacked by pests and viruses during the winter. In October or November, they are pruned at a level of 3 cm from the soil. With the onset of spring, dried or frozen stems are shortened to the first healthy bud. This should be done in April - by this time the kidneys are already swollen enough to determine which ones are healthy.
Raspberries need timely watering. The regularity of soil moisture depends on the weather conditions. To determine if the raspberry needs moisture, dig a lump of earth near the bush and squeeze it with your hands. If it forms well and does not disintegrate, then the soil moisture is at a sufficient level (70%). A scattering of a lump indicates a need for watering. Make two furrows 10 cm deep at a distance of 70 cm from the row and fill them with water. You will need 3-4 buckets of liquid for 1 m of the trench.
Organic food suitable for raspberries
An equally important step in the care is to provide the shrubs with fertilizers. At the beginning of the growing season, raspberries are fed with mullein solution (2 kg per 10 l of water). Fertilizer is applied in trenches dug at a distance of 50 cm from the bush. One plant consumes 5 liters of nutrient composition. In the last decade of June, re-feeding is carried out with a similar solution.
In addition to organic matter, it is also important to enrich the soil with minerals. Top dressing with phosphorus is carried out in the spring with the introduction of complex fertilizers, for example, nitroammofoska (50–100 g per square meter).
The development of raspberries also depends on the regular loosening of the soil. This procedure helps to provide air access to the root system. The first weeding is carried out before bud break. The soil is loosened by 10-15 cm. In the future, the procedure is performed as weeds appear or an earthen crust forms. During the season, raspberry bushes are weeded 4-6 times.
The garter will improve the yield of raspberries.
Repaired raspberries need support. Place poles along the edges of the trench and pull several rows of wire between them every 40-50 cm. As the stems grow, tie them to this trellis. In winter, the culture needs shelter. The best option for this purpose is snow, which must be shoveled onto raspberries. If the winter has little snow, straw or leaves are used as a shelter, which are laid 30 cm thick around the bush.
|Diseases||Symptoms||Treatment methods||Prevention methods|
|White spot||Treatment of the bush with a solution of 40 g of colloidal sulfur and 10 liters of water (consumption of 2 liters per 10 m2). Carried out after picking berries.|
|Purple spot||Treatment of bushes with 1% Bordeaux liquid. It is carried out before flowering or after picking berries.||Application in the spring of Nitrafen (200 g per 10 liters of water).|
|Rust||Sprinkling in the spring with Nitrafen 200 g per 10 liters of water; after fruiting, treatment with Oxyhom (2 tablets per 10 liters of water).||Cleaning and burning of fallen leaves.|
|Curliness||Diseases do not respond to treatment, the affected bushes are uprooted and burned.||Regular weeding, destruction of fallen leaves, and the use of healthy seedlings.|
|Gray rot||Treatment at the beginning of the growing season of bushes and soil with a solution of the Hom preparation (40 g per 10 l of water). This amount of the train will be enough for 100 m2.||Over-watering prevention.|
|Overgrowth (witch's broom)||There is no cure, the diseased plant must be destroyed.||Use healthy seedlings.|
|Weevil||Oviposition in buds, from which white larvae with yellow heads then emerge.||Cleaning and destruction of fallen leaves.|
|Raspberry beetle||Spraying with Confidor, Iskra, Decis (2 ml per 10 liters of water), 0.2% karbofos solution. It is carried out during the formation of the ovaries.||Digging the soil in spring and autumn to a depth of 15 cm.|
|Gall midge (raspberry gnat)||Spraying shoots and soil near bushes with Aktellik, Karbofos.|
|Stem fly||Withering and drying of shoots, in which the insect lays eggs, making special moves.||Processing during the formation of buds with a 0.3% solution of Karbofos, or with one of the preparations: Confidor, Iskra, Decis.|
|Kidney moth||Destruction of the kidneys.||Cutting shoots at the root after fruiting and then burning them.|
The ripening of the Bryansk diva berries begins in the last decade of August, and the fruiting period itself lasts until November. The yield of one bush is 3-4 kg on average. Raspberries ripen unevenly. Only red berries should be picked. The crop is harvested in 1-2 days in dry weather in the morning, when the dew has melted, or in the evening.
Important! It is advisable to remove berries for transportation with a stalk.
The harvest is put into baskets with a capacity of up to 4 kg. It is not recommended to use large containers, as the raspberries on the bottom are remembered. Damaged berries are laid in a separate container. Berries are stored at 0 ° C for no more than five days. Therefore, it is advisable to immediately consume or process them. Juices, jam, jams, preserves are made from the fruits of the Bryanskoe Marvel variety.
Bryansk Marvel is a high-yielding raspberry variety. The berries are highly transportable and have good taste. But the crop yield depends on care, which consists in watering, feeding, loosening the soil, pruning and preventing diseases.
Large-fruited variety of raspberries. The berries have a regular shape, ruby color. They ripen early. In addition, the variety is resistant to most raspberry diseases.
Winter-hardy large-fruited and high-yielding non-repairable variety. The berries are juicy, aromatic, sweet. Plants are medium-sized, semi-spreading bushes. Berries weighing up to 14 g, have a truncated-conical shape, a beautiful velvety surface. Berries of medium density, have a sweet raspberry aroma. Early ripening variety, bears fruit every year.
Already in the first year of planting, you can get a small harvest. Common raspberries do not yield significant yields and begin to bear weak fruit on two-year-old shoots. But remontant analogues will delight you with large berries with incredible taste. In subsequent years, remontant varieties of raspberries bear fruit twice - in mid-summer and in early-late autumn. Therefore, you can not only eat well, but also make a decent amount of preparations for the winter.
The high content of salicylic acid contributes to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and prevents the formation of malignant cells, increases immunity, has antipyretic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Red raspberry is a favorite delicacy not only for children, but also for adults. This dietary product compensates for the lack of vitamins and minerals in the body. It is actively used in traditional medicine. At the same time, the daily consumption rate, taking into account the manifestation of possible allergic reactions, for an adult is 2 glasses a day, for children - a maximum of a glass.
Large-fruited varieties of raspberries are those whose berries weigh 3–12 g. But there are also varieties that exceed these indicators. Their weight of one fruit can reach 18–20 g. As a result, these varieties are characterized by high yields. They are not without drawbacks. This, for example, is insufficient for most regions of Russia cold resistance and relatively poor immunity.
Husar variety from the early ripening category. Recognized as suitable for growing in the European part of Russia - from the Caucasus to the North-West region. It is appreciated for its unpretentious care, productivity, almost does not suffer with a moisture deficit. The variety tolerates cool summer weather well. Also raspberry Gusar relatively rarely suffers from viral (mosaic, dwarf, curly leaves, "witch's broom") and fungal (anthracnose, septoria, rust, gray rot, purple spot) diseases typical of the culture, and is rarely attacked by pests.
Gusar raspberries tolerate drought well
The bush is 1.8–2 m high, spreading. The shoots are powerful, vertical. Thorns are few in number, covering the lower third of the branches. The average weight of a berry is 4–5 g, some specimens - up to 10–12 g. The yield is high - up to 16 kg per bush. The taste is rated at 4.2 points out of five.
The variety is zoned for Eastern Siberia, it is also suitable for cultivation in the Black Sea region. By the timing of the ripening of the crop refers to the middle late. Demonstrates good frost resistance (at -30 ° C), practically does not suffer from bark damping. It is immune to anthracnose, purple spot. The spider mite practically does not pay attention to this raspberry.
In raspberries of the Brigantine variety, the bark is extremely rare in winter and spring.
The bush is about 1.5 m high.There are not too many shoots. The thorns are thick, covering the branches along their entire length. Berries weighing 3.2 g. The characteristic raspberry aroma is practically absent. The taste is sweet and sour, the tasting score is 3.9 points. The content of vitamin C is low - 25 mg per 100 g. Productivity - 2.5 kg per bush.
A very popular remontant variety, recommended for cultivation in the Central Region. It takes root well in Ukraine and Belarus. It does not suffer from rot, pests do not show much interest in it. The variety tolerates an abundance of rainfall well.
Hercules raspberries require careful preparation for winter.
This raspberry requires shelter for the winter if it is predicted to have little snow, but it is important not to overdo it with it. The roots are easy to undermine, the bush dies. The frost resistance of the variety is average, up to -21 ° С.
The bush is not particularly large, the shoots are vertical or slightly dull. They are powerful, even under the weight of the harvest they do not bend. The average height is 1.5–2 m. The ability to shoot shoots is low. Thick thorns cover the entire length of the branches.
The average weight of the berries is 6.8 g. The pulp is not too dense, aromatic. The content of vitamin C is quite high - 32 mg per 100 g, so the berries are noticeably sour. Nevertheless, the Hercules variety earned 4 points from professional tasters. But practice shows that the further north this raspberry is planted, the lower the yield. Also, with a lack of light and heat, taste worsens. It also strongly depends on the quality of the substrate. Productivity - 2.5-3.5 kg per bush.
The variety recommended by the author for cultivation in central Russia, especially in the Moscow region. Monomakh's hat endures local winters without noticeable damage. You can plant it beyond the Urals, but you will definitely need a shelter to protect it from frost. The advantages of raspberries are high yield and wonderful taste of berries. It is relatively rarely affected by pests, but it is always susceptible to viral and bacterial diseases, and fungal - if the summer is cool and rainy.
A significant drawback of raspberries of the Hat Monomakh variety is susceptibility to diseases
The height of the bush does not exceed 1.5 m. Due to the powerful, intensively branching shoots, it resembles a small tree. There are few thorns, they are concentrated at the base of the branches. The average weight of the berries is about 7 g, some specimens are up to 20 g (about with a plum). The size of the raspberry is greatly influenced by watering. The pulp is very sweet and juicy, but elastic, which leads to good transportability. The average yield is 4.5–5 kg, in particularly favorable seasons in terms of weather this figure reaches 8 kg. The beginning of fruiting occurs in the second decade of August.
The Eurasia variety is a relatively recent achievement of breeders. Repaired raspberry, medium ripening. It tolerates drought well, somewhat worse, but also not bad - heat. It is relatively rarely affected by diseases and pests. It does not make high demands on the quality of the substrate. The variety shows good transportability.
Eurasia raspberries can be harvested not only by hand
The shrub is about 1.3–1.6 m high, standard. These raspberries can be grown without trellis. The branches are covered with thorns along the entire length, but there are noticeably more of them at the base.
The berries weigh 3.6–4.5 g. The drupes are firmly fastened, easily detached from the stalk. The pulp is sweet and sour (vitamin C content - 34.9 mg per 100 g), practically devoid of aroma. Taste by professionals is rated at 3.9 points. Average yield - up to 2.6 kg per bush.
The Senator variety is not remontant, the ripening period of the berries is average. Resistant to fruit rot, demanding lighting. This raspberry reacts very negatively to moisture deficiency and waterlogging. The variety is characterized by a certain instability in terms of genetics - if you do not cut the bushes and do not apply fertilizers, the berries become smaller, the taste is lost.
Senator raspberries cannot boast of varietal resistance
The bush reaches a height of 1.8 m. The shoots are powerful. New shoots are being formed quite actively. There are no thorns. Winter hardiness up to -35 ° С.
The average weight of a berry is 7–12 g. Some specimens are about 15 g. Drupes are small, firmly linked. Raspberries tolerate transportation well. The taste deserves only positive reviews - the fruits are very juicy and sweet. The yield is not bad - about 4.5 kg per bush.
The variety is not remontant, medium early. It is successfully cultivated throughout Russia. The crop ripens in the last decade of June or early July - it depends on the weather. Fruiting is extended, lasts until mid-August. The crop is harvested in 5-6 receptions. The variety has immunity against diseases typical for the culture (anthracnose, septoria), the most dangerous pest is aphids.
Of all the pests, the most harm to raspberries of the Pride of Russia variety is caused by aphids
The height of the bush is 1.7-1.9 m. The shoots are powerful, erect. There are no thorns. Frost resistance up to -30 ° С. The variety also tolerates heat well, raspberries are not "baked". But sudden changes in temperature are harmful to her.
The berries weigh 8–12 g. With proper agricultural techniques, the weight increases to 15–20 g. The surface is uneven, as if bumpy. If it is cold and damp in summer, the fruits often grow together in two. The yield is above average - 5–6 kg per bush. The pulp is very tender and juicy, the taste is balanced, sweet and sour. But with a deficiency of heat and nutrients, the berries strongly acidify, lose their aroma. This raspberry does not tolerate transportation, it is stored for no more than a day.
As you might guess, this raspberry comes from Poland. A remontant variety, widely grown on an industrial scale due to its profitability. Winter hardiness is quite low, up to -20 ° C. Heat above 35 ° C and direct sunlight also does not tolerate well, even if properly watered. Roots most often suffer from diseases (rot, bacterial cancer).
The weak point in the Polka raspberry variety is the roots, it is they who most often suffer from diseases
The height of the bush is 1.5–1.8 m. The thorns are not numerous, soft. Fruiting begins at the end of July, lasts until the first frost and even when the temperature drops to -2 ° C.
The average weight of a berry is 3-5 g. Subject to proper fertilization - up to 6 g. The pulp is dense. The aroma is pleasant, delicate. The bones are very small, the drupes are firmly linked. Raspberries do not rot, ripe, firmly adheres to the bush. Productivity - up to 4 kg per bush.
Brilliant remontantny variety, recognized as the most suitable for cultivation in the Central region. It tolerates heat well, drought is somewhat worse. The variety is very picky about lighting - with a lack of light, the fruits become very shallow, the yield decreases. On average, you can count on 2.5-4 kg per bush. Good winter hardiness.
Raspberries of the Brilliantova variety are planted only in open sunny areas.
The bush is of medium height, spreading. The branches are slightly drooping under the weight of the fruit, but do not fall on the ground. There are few thorns, they are rather soft, located mainly at the base of the shoot.
Berries weighing 4.1 g. The seeds are large. The pulp is sweet, with a slight sourness, almost no aroma. The content of vitamin C is low - 20.5 mg per 100 g. The taste tasters are rated at 4 points.
Variety Indian Summer from the category of remontant. Berries begin to shoot in the second half of August. Suitable for cultivation throughout the European part of Russia - from the Caucasus to the North-West region.
The low yield of raspberries of the Indian Summer variety is compensated by the excellent taste of berries
The height of an erect bush is 1–1.5 m. The shoots are intensively branching. Of the diseases, the most dangerous are powdery mildew and purple spot, of the pests - the spider mite. There is immunity to the virus of curl and gray rot. The yield is relatively low - 1 kg per bush. Fruits of very good taste (score 4.5 points), size - medium to large (2.1-3 g). The content of vitamin C is 30 mg per 100 g.
Kirzhach is a popular medium-ripening variety. Winter hardiness allows it to be cultivated throughout the European part of Russia. Thaws don't cause him much trouble. Not picky about the quality of the substrate. Of the pests, the most dangerous is the raspberry beetle, of the diseases - root cancer and the overgrowth virus. The variety is not insured against anthracnose either.
When growing raspberries of the Kirzhach variety, special attention should be paid to the prevention of the appearance of a raspberry beetle.
The bush is high (2.5 m or more), the shoots are powerful, vertical. Medium-sized berries (2.2-3 g). The taste is rated quite high - 4.3 points. The bones are small, the drupes are firmly linked.
The most unpretentious, but hardy is considered Kuzmin's News. It is a time-tested crop with sweet berries that bears fruit consistently in a temperate continental climate. Most of the new varieties recommended for planting in the Moscow region were obtained by crossing this culture with other varieties.
In the Moscow region, the Patricia variety bears good fruit, as well as Hercules, Tarusa, Rubin. Kenby is well adapted to Moscow winters. Even if it freezes, this variety quickly revives in the spring and manages to give a good harvest of berries.
The latest generation of these varieties is changing the way we think about raspberries. The newest remontant varieties taste no worse than traditional varieties. A highly publicized variety Caramel - really tasty. But most gardeners do not even know that there are remontant varieties that are in no way inferior to this variety in taste: Izobilnaya Kazakova, Himbo Top, Joan Jay, Jacqueline.
Perhaps the most important problem for remontant raspberries is that they can realize themselves in the warm late summer and early autumn. In areas where heat is scarce, there are simple ways to partially remedy this situation. All simple techniques to ensure proper conditions are described in detail in the specialized literature.
The main advantage of remontant raspberries is practically ecological fruiting. The remontant raspberry has virtually no pests and diseases, which means that it does not need to be treated with chemicals. The berries are the purest!
Many varieties of remontant raspberries are weak, have a strong stem and can be grown without additional support: Penguin, Atlas, Eurasia, Himbo Top, Autumn Trechet other.
Experienced gardeners remember that raspberries in the past severe winters often froze shoots and there was no harvest. Since remontant raspberries bear fruit on a one-year growth, the problem of winter hardiness does not exist for it.
And one more thing: having remontant raspberries, you can manage to get both the summer harvest on the branches of last year, and the autumn harvest on the shoots of the current year. True, this will not work without good care.
Variety Atlant - a laborer variety
Repaired raspberries, one might say, are a novelty in the areas of amateur gardeners. Among gardeners, there are a lot of both supporters and ardent opponents of remontant raspberries. Why?
First, once again, let's draw the attention of gardeners to what features distinguish it from ordinary raspberries. First of all, this is the ability to bear fruit twice per season. Once - at the usual time, on the shoots of last year, in mid-July, and the second time - on the shoots of the current year, starting in August for the earliest varieties and ending in October, when autumn frosts kill the ovary. “So what,” you say, “we already know this ... And at the same time we know that a“ normal ”July berry is tastier than an autumn one.”
Yes, it is almost so! But believe me, you don't have enough grounds for such categorical judgments. You haven't tasted the best remontant raspberries! What varieties these are, we will tell you a little later.
In order to understand that remontant raspberries are the berry of the future, it is necessary to briefly explain what disadvantages common raspberry varieties have.
1. The first and, probably, the most important thing. Summer residents who have traditional raspberry varieties on the site have developed an instinct: before sending at least one berry to your mouth, you need to carefully look at it to see if it contains a small white larva - a raspberry beetle. And in most cases, when caring for ordinary raspberries, chemical treatments cannot be dispensed with. Have you ever wondered why raspberries on the market are not damaged by a raspberry beetle? That's it, precisely because it is treated with means of fighting the raspberry beetle! And some of this chemistry inevitably ends up in the berries. We are not inclined to exacerbate this problem, we only want to draw the attention of gardeners to the importance of understanding that there are environmentally friendly products, which include remontant raspberries. And there is a raspberry beetle wherever there is a raspberry!
For a remontant raspberry, this problem does not exist. All berries are clean, because the development cycle of the raspberry beetle is designed for berries that ripen in July, which means that remontant raspberries, even theoretically, are not damaged by this pest, and there is no need to spray them.
2. Since traditional raspberry varieties bear fruit on last year's shoots, the gardener needs to provide them with a good overwintering, and many varieties (flower buds on the shoots) do not even withstand -30 ° C. This means that damaged buds do not produce a crop, and this happens quite often.
Repaired raspberries are cut at soil level in late autumn. Only the rhizome hibernates, which never freezes.
3. In addition, long shoots of traditional raspberries must be fixed somehow - on a trellis or tied to another support. And these are additional chores that we try to avoid.
Several varieties of remontant raspberries hold the crop load well and do not require support at all: Penguin, Atlas, Yellow Penguin, Eurasia, King Penguin.
4. And to top it all off, traditional raspberries have some pretty dangerous diseases and pests that damage the shoots. The plant weakens, sometimes dies, and in all these cases, chemistry is used, and it inevitably falls on the berries. But the remontant raspberry has no such problems. The life cycle of diseases and pests is closely related to shoots, which also live for two years, and in remontant raspberries they are annuals.
Repaired raspberries bear fruit on the shoots of the current year, which are pruned in late autumn, so there are no problems associated with diseases at all!
5. Skeptics will probably note that remontant raspberries taste worse than regular raspberries. At the same time, the fact that the main crop of raspberries is used for processing is kind of hushed up, and sugar is added there to taste.
Have you tasted raspberry varieties Orange Miracle, Himbo-Top, Joan Jay, Abundant Kazakova, Caramel, Autumn Beauty? They are, perhaps, tastier than many traditional varieties!
6. Another complaint about remontant varieties: they ripen late and in many northeastern regions of the country, where summers are short and cool, they simply do not have time to ripen.
It is necessary to clarify that there are remontant varieties that begin to ripen very early and can fit even in a short summer: Penguin, Eurasia, Yellow Penguin.
7. But experienced gardeners manage to get a harvest even in completely hopeless climatic conditions. Here, no doubt, some recommendations will come in handy. First, we do not lose sight of and use extremely simple "agricultural techniques" aimed at accelerating the growth of shoots and consisting in clearing snow in the spring from the ridge where remontant raspberries grow, and then covering this ridge with white non-woven material until flowering. These two methods allow you to accelerate the entry into fruiting by almost a month or more and get ahead of autumn!
These two agricultural practices allow you to get berries in regions with a harsh climate, such as Arkhangelsk or Khanty-Mansiysk.
do not aim for two harvests. Avoid thickening with shoots in the bush, leave 4-5 of the most powerful shoots per square meter of area, remove the rest, less developed ones, at the beginning of June at soil level. And an early harvest is guaranteed.
The variety is handsome, excellent harvest, large clean berry. But - not very tasty. Yes it is! It is the residents of the center of Russia who can dare to criticize this handsome man. Despite this, Penguin is the earliest variety, it ripens at the end of July. But in the North, somewhere in Tyumen or Krasnoyarsk, he has no one to compete with. Other varieties do not ripen at all. And if we consider that it never freezes in winter, then it should be called "Northern Penguin".
The penguin is a real find for northern gardeners who are trying to grow berry crops in areas with a harsh climate.
A hard worker variety that can serve as the basis for a small commercial production. A beautiful, tasty berry, and besides, dense, is the best fit for sale on the market.
20 well-tended bushes can provide a harvest in August-September in the amount of 100–120 kg. And if we add that the bush is erect and does not require support, then this is truly a godsend for large-scale commercial production.
Holiday variety. The combination of excellent taste, raspberry aroma and amazing amber color makes it unique among many remontant varieties. Several shrubs of this variety will be both a decoration and a delight for your garden.
One of the first successful varieties of remontant raspberries, bred by I.V. Kazakov. Feels good in various soil and climatic conditions. The bush is of medium vigor and requires support. High-yielding technical grade.
The berries are large, shirokokonicheskie, dark red, rather dense. Table taste, slightly sour. The variety is distinguished by the reliability of fruiting, even with poor agricultural technology.
It belongs to vigorous varieties, in which there is a common disadvantage for such plants: support is required, since the shoots lie under the weight of the harvest. The bush itself is represented by strong, well-branched, drooping shoots, which bloom with ripening chiseled red berries against a background of light green foliage.
The berries are quite large, bright red, elongated, very beautiful and tasty. The variety ripens at the end of August - beginning of September. The conditions of the Lipetsk and Voronezh regions are better suited to reveal the full potential of its yield.
Many gardeners are already familiar with the Penguin remontant variety, they know it as the earliest and most productive variety, and this is really so. And now nature has presented a twin variety, very similar to the Penguin in terms of growth and ripening time, but with yellow berries, rounded and slightly sweeter than the original variety.
A random seedling obtained in an experimental breeding nursery from the original variety Bryanskoe Divo. A variety of medium vigor, with drooping shoots, requires high-quality support, since under the weight of a large harvest, shoots with ripening berries lie on the ground and the berries can rot.
The yield is very high, surpassing any other variety in this indicator. With good care, it is realistic to collect a bucket from a bush. The beginning of berry ripening is the end of August. Berries of medium size, elongated shape, chiseled, very tasty, taste as good as Caramelka, the most delicious variety in the collection of varieties studied in the experimental breeding nursery.
The pride of Russian breeders. The variety was bred by Ivan Vasilyevich Kazakov. Amazingly large conical berries, excellent taste and high yield are the hallmark of the variety.
The variety is vigorous, with drooping shoots, requires support. The berries ripen at the end of August. In general, the variety is well suited to the conditions of the center of Russia.
Medium late remontant grade. Differs in fruits of apricot color, delicate taste. The beginning of ripening is mid-August. Bushes are powerful, spreading, require support.
Fruits are bright orange, spherical, with juicy pulp. The taste is sweet, with a slight sourness, with practically no aroma. The weight of one berry can reach 3.5 g. The taste is somewhat inferior to the Orange Miracle variety.
Variety Yantarnaya Sadko winters well, is weakly affected by pests and diseases. Drought does not tolerate well. To get a good harvest, regular watering is necessary.
Variety with upright shoots, can be grown without support. It has a characteristic shape, reminiscent of a small tree, where red berries of medium size ripen on the side branches, quite tasty. Mass ripening - mid-August. By mid-September, the variety ends fruiting.
A variety of red raspberries, distinguished by the original shape of the berries: at the top of some large ripe berries, a rudiment of a new berry is formed, which somewhat disturbs the perception of the variety. At the same time, there are almost no thorns. Very large berries and high yields with a good agricultural background make this variety very popular. Requires support. Harvesting from late July until frost.
The variety was obtained in an experimental breeding nursery, it is being studied since the end of August 2010. The berries are large, round, and sweet. The structure of the bush is similar to the Atlant variety with its erect habit. Can be grown without support. The beginning of ripening is mid-August.
So, you have decided what varieties you need, and made a choice, for example, in favor of remontant raspberries. In this case, we would like to acquaint you with foreign novelties, worthy of attention. These are Jacqueline, Himbo Top, Joan J (Joan J).
An early type of remontant raspberry bred in 2003 in the USA.
The berries are large and very large, weighing 8-9 g, elongated (up to 40 mm), beautifully shaped, maroon color. The fruits are very sweet, practically devoid of acidity, have a pronounced aroma, rich raspberry aftertaste. The disadvantage of the variety is the uneven ripening of the berries. Not fully ripe "nose" makes it difficult to eat berries. Frequent collection of only fully ripe fruits is required. Ripe berries are dense, with good transportability, perfectly tolerate freezing. After defrosting, they do not sour.
The yield is high - more than 2 kg of berries per bush. Due to the early ripening period (early August), the crop has time to ripen completely before frost. Jacqueline is highly stable. The flavor of the berries does not diminish both during prolonged rains and cold weather, and during hot dry periods.
A relatively new variety of remontant raspberries, Joan Jay is famous for its large-fruited, excellent taste and bountiful harvests. However, the berries overripe quickly, do not tolerate transportation and long-term storage, so the variety is more suitable for growing in small quantities in private garden plots, for fresh consumption and frequent collection. Joan Jay's bushes are distinguished by their short stature (on average 100–120 cm, maximum height up to 170 cm), thornlessness along the entire length of the shoot, and the power of the branches.

Garden raspberry (or ordinary). It is she who opens the season of abundant fruiting in the raspberry garden in the second decade of June. Its varieties are subdivided into early, mid-season and late.

Raspberry remontant. This is a unique type of raspberry, obtained as a result of many years of selection, and is capable of producing two crops in one year. The first - on last year's shoots - at the end of June and the second - on the shoots of the current year - at the end of September - early October.
But in this mode, remontant raspberries can bear fruit exclusively in the southern regions with early spring and late lingering autumn. In most of the territory of Russia, with a short summer and a rapid onset of autumn cold weather, the second crop simply cannot ripen.
Therefore, in the northern regions, remontant raspberries are grown on the shoots of the current year, which are cut out at the base of the bush immediately after the end of fruiting.
Then the berry harvest ripens in mid-August. Fruiting of remontant raspberries in warm autumn weather can last until the end of September.
The biological feature of the remontant raspberry is that its powerful vertical shoots begin to grow at the end of April. But for this she needs increased doses of fertilizers, a lot of sun, and more fertile soil than garden raspberries.

So, due to the lack of chemical treatments for plant protection, you will receive exclusively environmentally friendly berries from the bushes of remontant raspberries.
