Characteristics of raspberry remontnaya

This type of raspberry was bred 200 years ago. And in the future, breeders have worked hard, and brought varieties specifically for the middle band. On the territory of the Moscow region, remontant raspberries have been grown for about 70 years. This type of appearance may not differ from ordinary raspberries. These are perennial bushes, with a spreading root system. But not every remontant raspberry forms root shoots, and, in general, can grow poorly in this way.

The main difference of this species is that the berries are formed mainly on young shoots. Each spring, young stalks grow on the bush, they bear fruit, and by winter the upper parts of the branches dry out. They need to be cut, leaving a few buds. The following year, new fertile shoots are formed on the remainder of the stem. Some gardeners leave last year's stems, but in this case, the berries will be small. Therefore, the bush should be cut off without any regrets. This is the only way to achieve a generous harvest on annual shoots.

At the same time, the repair raspberry has a number of other advantages. It has a high disease resistance and is also rarely affected by pests. Because of this, the berries grow neat and unspoiled insects. For such a raspberry is much easier to care for. With proper care, the berries grow very large. Now many gardeners grow exactly raspberry remontants. Moreover, the choice of varieties is very large. There are early, late and high-yielding raspberries. In general, the choice for every taste.

Reviews

Olga, Podolsk I am very pleased with the Kalashnik variety. This raspberry has a unique sweet taste and aroma. Productivity, without exaggeration, is very high. Can be grown for industrial purposes. I am sure it will be profitable. We still have a small plot planted, but in the future we plan to expand it. For jam and stewed enough small beds.

Nadezhda, Voskresensk. Only recently I discovered the repair raspberry. Already tried a couple of varieties. It is very convenient that the fruiting period is stretched to the very autumn, as they have never had time to enjoy fresh berries before. Now we can eat fresh, roll up and freeze. Productivity at such raspberry is much higher, than at usual grades. The old raspberries had to be dug, it was too much inferior to remontant varieties.
