Rubus idaeus Raspberry Chilcotin
The Berry Patch in a Pot™ Range features four great varieties of fruit that can be grown in any garden! The species is indigenous to Asia Minor and North America, although the epithet denotes Mt. Ida, in the Caucasus Mountains of Asia Minor.
Raspberries can be used in a variety of appealing ways. Freshly prepared and sugared raspberries are excellent when served alone or used to make a raspberry sundae.
The fruit can also be used to make delicious jams and desserts. Besides their excellent flavour, raspberries are an extremely nutritious food, and can supplement vitamins A and C and various minerals.
Raspberry plants grow best where the spring is a long, slow, warming process. In warmer climates, they prefer a light shade but need full sun for the best berry production. They should be planted in rich, well-drained soil that has been generously supplemented with compost.
These plants are ideal for pots and containers, and feature a great recipe on the back of each label.
