Atherton Raspberry Plant FAQ's 🌱

This has to be one of our favourite native fruits. Sweet and succulent red globular fruit reminiscent of raspberries and strawberries that stew well in jams and preserves or easily dotted along with a summer-time sponge cake. Atherton Raspberry (Rubus probus) is a must-have for any bushfood garden.

The Atherton raspberry is harvested by gently pulling the fruit from the plant when it is fully ripe. The fruit will come off easily when it is ready. Be sure to harvest the berries as soon as they are ripe, as they do not keep well on the plant and can attract pests.

Being a tropical species, drying out is a common cause of death especially for younger plants.

During winter time, you can hold back on watering but as the temperature increases ensure that you're keeping your Atherton Raspberry well watered. When dry, it will wilt which is a good indication of when to water.

Atherton Raspberry isn't very drought tolerant, so in regions with low-rainfall will need to be supplemented by additional watering.

As a fast-growing native edible plant, Atherton Raspberry grows quickly if left unchecked. It's super vital, especially in pots, that it's grown with a trellis to be an upright plant or left without support to be a shrub.

Some issues can include drying out or overwatering, which yellowing leaves or wilted leaves can easily identify. Keep in a sunny spot on a balcony or backyard.

Use a high-quality potting mix without fillers or additives, and add your own plant food for the highest success.

Being a plant that generates large volumes of fruit, it's important to continue fruiting that you feed regularly. Fertilising with high-quality plant food during winter and summer will result in a plant with deep green foliage and lots of fruit.

The ripe berries of the Atherton Raspberry are edible and have a sweet flavour. They are often used in jams, desserts, and fresh fruit toppings.
