Description

Tulameen raspberry (Rubus idaeus) is a summer fruiting raspberry with upright, almost thornless canes and abundant large red summer berries. The plants fruit from their second year with fruit produced from December through to May once established. Raspberries are self-fertile.

Tulameen is a Medium to cold climate variety requiring around 450 chilling hours or greater. Warm winter climates are not suited to Tulameen raspberries as flowering and fruit set can be poor. To calculate the chilling hours for your area please refer to our blog Guide to Chilling Hours in Australia

In warm summer/ cool winter climates (Warm Temperate) it is best to grow the raspberries in a protected position where they are not subject to the hot afternoon sun. They will tolerate light shade/ filtered sun positions. In Cool Temperate climates (mild summers/cool winters) they can be grown in the full sun.

If you would like to grow raspberries in warm winter climates, the low chill varieties Heritage or Autumn Bliss can be grown.

You will need to keep weeds away from the canes and mulch and water regularly until the plant becomes well established. Cut canes that have fruited down to ground level in early to mid autumn to allow new growth to form. Tulameen is a floricane it produces fruit on second year wood…they are deciduous and spread from rhizomes.

Raspberries are best grown on a wire trellis, staked or against a fence. They are suitable for growing in large containers.

Our orchard size raspberry plants are 40-70cm tall ready to plant directly in the garden.
