Caracteristics and uses:
The 'Fall Gold' is a self-fertilizing, double cropping raspberry bush.
The first crop arrives in August and the second in October.
After the first harvest, cut the stems back to ground level.
After winter, prune only the dry part of the stems (those which bore
fruit in the autumn). It is from these stems that the first crop will
arrive the following summer. 'Fall Gold 'raspberries are firm, medium
sized, scented and very tasty.
You can train your raspberry bush
along a fence or against a pergola.
