Autumn Raspberries Fruiting In June/July

Dear Monty,

Please could you advise me on why my autumn fruiting raspberries are bearing fruit now?

I pruned them during February 2017 so they have this years growth.

I am not complaining because it is lovely to have raspberries now, but will this have any impact on them bearing fruit during October and November?

Kind regards,


Longlevens, Gloucester.

    Just in case Monty isn't in today, please allow me to answer this.  It appears you did such a grand job of pruning your autumn-fruiting raspberries last winter you are being treated to a few extra this summer.  It probably depends on the variety but I would anticipate that you'll still get a good crop in autumn.

    Many thanks for your reply Bob, it is much appreciated.

    I do hope you are correct. 

    I will have to ensure I do exactly the same this coming winter.

    Kind regards,

    Hi all

    My Autumn fruiting rasps (Autumn bliss) are just starting to bud up however glad they are not cropping early as my Glen Ample summer fruiting are now giving off in large volume.

    However I will be picking rasps from both upto October so getting the freezer ready.

    ps I also cut down my Autumn canes in February but they are very quick to get established after a good covering with rotted cow manure

    Happy gardening

    Those look smashing ... they're ahead of my Polka, but mine do look as if they'll be earlier than usual.  image

    My Autumn fruiting raspberries are already just starting to crop.........much much earlier than in previous years.  I chopped them to the ground in February.  I hope they do carry on fruiting until the Autumn and that the hot weather hasn't thrown their 'growing clock' out of sync.!!

    I've been picking 'Autumn' fruiting Polka raspberries for the last 4 weeks - not many at a time - just enough to add to a bowl of cereal or ice cream. They're very early this year.
