How not to get lost among such abundance and choose the right bushes? In this article, we will select the top of the best varieties of remontant raspberries for the Moscow region.
Characteristics of the remontant raspberry
This type of raspberry was bred 200 years ago. And in the future, the breeders did a good job, and bred varieties specifically for the middle lane. On the territory of the Moscow region, remontant raspberries have been grown for about 70 years. This look may not differ in any way from ordinary raspberries. These are perennial shrubs with a spreading root system. But not every remontant raspberry forms root shoots, and, in general, can reproduce poorly in this way.
The main difference between this species is that the berries are formed mainly on young shoots. Every spring, young stems grow on the bush, they bear fruit, and by winter the upper parts of the branches dry out. They must be cut off, leaving a few buds. The next year, new fertile shoots are formed on the remainder of the stem. Some gardeners leave last year's stems, but in this case, the berries will be small. Therefore, the bush should be pruned without regret. This is the only way to achieve a generous harvest on annual shoots.
At the same time, remontant raspberries have a number of other advantages. It has a high disease resistance, and is also rarely affected by pests. Thanks to this, the berries grow neat and unspoiled by insects. Such raspberries are much easier to care for. With timely pruning of remontant raspberries in the fall and proper care, the berries grow very large. Now many gardeners grow exactly remontant raspberries. Moreover, the choice of varieties is very large. There are early, late and high yielding raspberries. In general, a choice for every taste.

However, leaving last year's shoots, there is a risk of getting a poor harvest.

So, if you want to get a high-quality harvest, you need to properly prune the bush in the fall.
