Autumn Britten Red Raspberry
Autumn Britten produces fruit on nearly the whole cane. The plants bear very prolific crops of excellent flavored red berries.
Autumn Britten originated in Great Britain and ripens before Caroline and Heritage, bearing fruit from late summer through the fall. The plants are both cold hardy and tolerant of heat in the South.
Raspberries are naturally biennial with a perennial crown. Primocanes grow the first year, go dormant in fall, get chilled in winter, and fruit the following summer (the primocanes are now called floricanes, which die after fruiting). New primocanes are growing as the floricanes fruit. Floricane varieties must be pruned in the spring to thin the fruiting canes and remove dead canes for better disease management and fruit size.
