Raspberry ‘Chilliwack’ is a summer fruiting variety with big, delicious, plump berries that you can harvest for four to five weeks. In ideal conditions a smaller, second crop can be harvested in autumn. The bush has top disease resistance, vigorous growth and very few thorns.
Raspberry ‘Chilliwack’ berries are yummy from the bush, in jams and cooking. The berries hold well the branches, so you don’t need to harvest them all at once to get the best flavour from them.
Raspberries grow well in cool climates and are pretty easy care and the plants produce reliably for many years.
Plant Raspberries in full sun. A humus rich, well drained soil is ideal. Space 150-180cm apart. Plant the cane quite shallow, around 10cm deep. Water in and keep moist when in flower and fruit. Add some mulch to help with water retention and weed reduction.
