Yellow raspberry, berry shrub with yellow fruits is not grown commercially. Can be found only in private gardens, cottages. I can explain this by saying that it is not so easy to buy seedlings of the best varieties of yellow raspberries in nurseries, although there is great interest in them. I think that, firstly, this is due to the attractive unusual color of the berries. And, secondly, it has a pleasant taste, sweeter than that of red fruit or black fruit varieties.
There are, of course, disadvantages. The berries of the yellow raspberry are less dense, so they are practically not transportable, unlike the red berries. Although the selection of varieties does not stand still - there are already varieties, berries that can withstand transportation. This, for example, varieties Amber, Golden Autumn, others.
Yellowberry raspberry, just like any other, is a perennial berry shrub. She also has one, two-year-old stems with a perennial root system. As well as raspberry varieties, it has a two-year development cycle. That is, in the first year new shoots appear, on which fruits appear in the second year. Then they die - they are also cut out, removed.
Yellow raspberry is normal and remontant. Like any red or black, the usual ripen in June( Kuban), July( middle Russia), and the remontant blooms, bears fruit twice a year. The second time is in August-September.
Planting and care for yellow raspberries are the same as for red. By the way, the usual yellow raspberry varieties are cold-resistant, so they do not require additional shelter for the winter. Caring for remontant varieties is different, so we'll talk about this below.содерж to content ↑
Repair yellow raspberry - planting and care
You can plant shrubs of the repair yellow raspberry in rows, stripes - this is the so-called strip landing method. Between the rows, 1.5-2 meters are left, and in the row, the distance between the seedlings during planting is 50-60 cm.
If you plant seedlings in early spring, then in the fall, with proper care, you can already get the first berries.
The difference in the care of remontant varieties of yellow raspberry is that in the fall after harvest, all the seedlings from the seedlings are cut out. The pruning is done very low, near the surface of the earth.
Spring care also has its own characteristics. Once the shoots in length reached 10-15 cm, should be cut weak shoots. On a plot of about 1 meter long, 10–20 stems should remain.
By the way, remontant varieties of yellow raspberries can be grown without treating them from diseases, pests. After all, in the fall all the shoots are removed, which means that timely removal of sick or infected pests of shoots, sources of infection.
Remontant varieties of yellow raspberry bloom late. This saves plants from the larvae of the raspberry beetle, which appear on varieties of the usual raspberry a month earlier.
Another feature is that in winter the site with reparative yellow raspberries looks empty, the roots with buds of future shoots are in the ground, therefore, in a snowless frosty winter, you should cover the rows with sawdust or fallen leaves. In the Kuban remontant raspberries can not cover.содерж to the content ↑
