Autumn Britten Raspberry

One of the earliest fall bearing raspberry varieties.

One of the earliest fall bearing raspberry varieties. Berries turn red in mid-July. Large, sweet fruit are firm yet juicy, and the canes are upright and vigorous. Primary variety for farm production as it makes large berries that come ripe earlier in the season. Autumn Britten is disease resistant and should have a low trellis, for though the canes are sturdy, they bow under the weight of the berries.
