Anne is the yellow variety of Heritage Raspberry. Both are known as everbearing or fall-fruiting Raspberries. Anne is a delicate apricot-yellow color with the largest fruits of all the everbearing Raspberries. Anne is self-pollinating but will have a heavier crop when planted near at least one other everbearing variety. Harvesting is done from both primocanes in the fall and floricanes early the next summer.
Anne Raspberry Care
Plant these shrubs as early as possible. They will tolerate lower temperatures and establish better during the cool, damp spring days. Well-drained soil is best for a heavy crop of fruit. Mulching with straw or organic compost will help retain moisture longer. Raspberries grow well in partial shade but fruit the heaviest in full sun.
Growing Anne Raspberry
Anne Raspberry will only produce fruit once it is 1-2 years old. The pruning for everbearing Raspberries is essential to enjoy the harvest twice a summer. Only prune out the oldest canes in the fall. These will look dead and be quite stout in diameter. The oldest canes would have been the current year floricanes, and they die after fruiting in the early summer. The primocanes appear in the early spring and will be much thinner than floricanes. These produce the fall fruit. Yearly removal of old floricanes helps to keep the bush thriving and tidy. Anne Raspberry can reach a height and width of 5-7 feet. Give Raspberries plenty of room since they can be long-lived shrubs. Some live 40 years or more.
Raspberries can be grown in containers. The containers need to be very deep with excellent drainage. Pruning is a significant part of keeping container-grown berries healthy. Large containers like whiskey barrels are perfect and wonderful to use if you don't have room for a permanent planting of Raspberries. Use two parts soil-based potting soil mixed with 1 part organic compost. This helps get the Raspberries off to a good start. Fertilizing will need to be done regularly throughout the summer. Feed with a diluted liquid seaweed or fish emulsion every 3-4 weeks. Stop fertilizing by the end of August, just as the last harvest is developing.
Watering Anne Raspberry
Raspberries perform best with deep watering from drip irrigation or soaker hoses once a week. This helps the roots to grow deep in the ground, where they are less likely to be affected by drought and heat. Container-grown Raspberries may need watering 2-3 times a week depending on natural rainfall in your gardening zone.
Feeding Anne Raspberry
Fertilize established Raspberries once a year with a granular, slow-release fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs. Look for an NPK ratio of 2-6-2 or similar. The higher Phosphorous number supports heavier flowering, which results in more berries.
