Did you know? Yellow raspberries are suitable for allergy sufferers, young children and nursing mothers.
Only with the organization of good care and compliance with agricultural technology can a good crop yield be achieved.
The crop stability depends on the place of planting. It should be well lit so that the plants are warm. For good air circulation, the beds must be oriented from north to south. Also, groundwater should not lie too low. Suitable soil acidity for planting this variety is pH 5.5–6.5.
Landing and care
Dig the ground two weeks before planting. It is imperative to add nutrients: humus, manure or compost. Before planting, pits are made with a depth of 50 cm and filled with 20 cm stones, slivers of trees, which, when decayed, will nourish the roots of plants. Top with soil and watered to tamp.
Important! It is necessary to plant seedlings at a distance of 30 to 50 cm from each other so that diseases and pests do not develop.
Before planting, seedlings are dipped in water with potassium permanganate. Thus, the shoots are saturated with moisture. Before planting, seedlings are pruned, leaving 3-5 buds. The upper buds during planting should be located at ground level. After planting, the ground must be crushed and well watered. The beds are sure to mulch.
Raspberries do not require top dressing in the first 3 years. Then it is recommended to fertilize plants with wood ash in spring or summer.Watering must be carried out in a timely manner, since this variety loves water. On average, 35 liters of water are spent for watering 1 m². In the dry period, the culture also requires a large amount of moisture.
Pest and Disease Control
According to gardeners, this variety is rarely sick. In many respects, this is the merit of the creators of the variety, thanks to which diseases bypass this shrub. Pests also ignore plants, but do not forget about the rules of prevention.
Since raspberries form quite tall bushes, in the spring you need to build trellises, to which it will be convenient to tie the shoots. This is a guarantee that the bushes will not break under the weight of the berries. In addition, harvesting in this case will be much easier. In the fall, after pruning raspberries, structures can be taken apart.
Pruning and wintering
For this raspberry, pruning is essential. Usually the process takes place in the fall. Be sure to cut off the biennial shoots from which they have already harvested. In the spring, sanitary pruning is performed, during which weakened and diseased shoots are cut to the root.
Since the variety is characterized by frost resistance, a lot of preparation before winter is not required.
There are two ways to prepare raspberries for wintering:
- with preservation of stems;
- full cut.
It is advisable to begin preparations in late autumn. Raspberries should be covered during frosty and snowless winters. Shallow digging and fertilizing is also a good winter preparation.
Important! Under the thickness of the snow, leave only the rhizome.
Harvesting and transportation
Fruiting occurs twice during the entire season. The first ripening occurs in June-July, the second - in August-September. The variety is characterized by not very good transportability of the fruit.
Only selected berries can go to market shelves, while retaining their appearance. The remaining amount of harvested gardeners use to prepare blanks for the winter. With proper care and cultivation, you can enjoy the berries of this variety in large quantities.
The variety with the same name acquired last year, in the fall they harvested a small crop. This year, one of the first was pleased with the berry. The berry is large, round. I find it difficult to write the nuances of taste, but very tasty. She ate and sang: “Golden domes delight my soul ...” I tried to take a picture of the berry, but the attempt was not the most successful
