Wanted to share our success with an alternative variety to 'Heritage' or 'Autumn Bliss' Raspberries.

While placing an order for several hundred #1 Autumn Bliss plants, our supplier (Spooner Farms in Washington) came up short and suggested an alternative.

Autumn Britten is a winner

This raspberry is a sister seedling selection of the popular Autumn Bliss

USDA Zone 3a to 9
Primocane Variety - Fall Fruiting
Moderately Vigorous
Attractive plant. Height to 5 feet, appreciates trellis support as the weight of the fruit can pull down some of the canes.

Begins to ripen by mid July and continues through October. . . Good flavor, Firm Fruit that can get quite large. Mowed to the ground each year and we have had next to no pest or disease problems noted in the 3 years we have been growing this variety.

Would be an excellent variety for a You Pick operation as the harvest comes over 3 months!

Give this one a try, you will be glad you did.

Gopher Hill Apples
Zone 8 in California
