New underground shoots that grow in spring are able to bear fruit this season.
Very often, to prolong the time of collection of raspberry use this property remontant varieties and form a Bush on the basis of two types of branches.
Berries on two-year shoots appear in June, July. The fruits of annual increment is pleased with the owners in August and September until frost. However, this greatly weakens the Bush and requires special care.
