Atherton Raspberry

If you are looking for a tasty little bush food to fit into a sunny corner look no further than the Atherton Raspberry. The fruits are highly attractive bright scarlet red berries that are about the same size as a normal raspberry but are a little more relaxed in their shape. They have a delicious sweet, juicy flavour and will be eagerly sought out by foraging children. They ripen in winter and spring when no others raspberries are in fruit so they will extend your fruiting season if you are a raspberry lover. The plants are very thorny so are best kept under control with regular pruning and make sure they are planted back from pathways to avoid being snagged. If you don't eat them all in the garden and manage to get some back to your kitchen they can be made into delicious jam or raspberry sauce.
