RASPBERRY FALL GOLD
Golden raspberries are a rare and exquisite juicy treat, sometimes sold as a novelty berry at specialist markets when they command a very high price. Sweeter than red ones, they completely lack the sharp acids and natural red dyes of red ones, so for lovers of sweet fruits they are absolutely perfect. They are rarely eaten by birds the usual thieves, because they are not generally interested in the yellow fruits, so no special protection is needed! As well as being extremely hardy, they are primocane raspberries..... (yes a rare word), meaning they bear fruit on the first year canes. But the subsequent final potential is for TWO fruit crops, the first in late July, then a second bigger yield in September, October, and incredibly even into a mild November, and we didn't believe it until we grew them, right into the first frosts! Grow these raspberries and amaze your guests, and who wouldn’t want to enjoy a yellow raspberry jam or a dessert with sweet yellow raspberries?
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
