Williamette Raspberries in SE Qld?

Postby shamus » Fri Sep 09, 2011 9:02 am

I am considering buyins some Williamette raspberries but am not sure of their chilling requirements. I live in Ipswich which has around 5-10 decent frosts in winter and drops below zero a couple of times as well. Would Williamette be suitable or should I stick to a lower chill like Heritage?
thanks,
Shane

We've got a heritage raspberry planted and already starting to get fruit from it. Was wondering about williamete because garden express had them fairly cheap. No need now, heritage should be fine.

The Heritage is fruiting pretty well for its first year. I planted it back in June (I think) andgot a couple off it sometime around October but the main crop is coming along nicely and we should be able to try the first one today or tomorrow!
