Silvanberry

Rubus 'Silvanberry'

Developed by the Department of Agriculture in the 1970s at Silvan in Victoria, this cross between marionberry and boysenberry is slower to ripen than most caneberries, making it easier to pick at the perfect time. Silvanberries hold well on the bush and won’t turn to mush in the blink of an eye. Vigorous berries, plant in a dedicated berry bed and remove suckers as they appear.

How to grow

FLORICANE RASBERRY - These raspberries fruit on second year wood. Prune after fruiting, but only remove the canes that have already produced fruit. Provide a trellis or frame at planting to contain growth and for ease of harvest. Improve soil with compost prior to planting. Apply compost annually in spring. Water during long dry periods and during fruiting.
