Autumn fruiting raspberries will produce fruit in the early summer on old wood and then in autumn on new wood, but allowing them to fruit on the old wood rather than cutting it down will compromise the total yield.
I certainly enjoy cranachan That's an illustrious surname you bear Jean.
I have some raspberries, I think they're autumn fruiting ones but cannot remember fully when they fruited. They were newly planted last year and did grow some fruit so I had assumed they must be autumn fruiting. But I do now that summer ones grow on existing canes, I have some canes at the moment with buds on, so I'm confused totally. If I keep an eye on them this year, what months should the fruit come for summer and autumn varieties?
I did not do well with aspberries last so as i had both types I've added new ones & cut all to the bottom
I found packs of 3 canes, one each of Glen Lyon, Glen Ample and Autumn Bliss at my local Wilkinsons a few months ago.
RE: Bob the gardener: I've just done a quick search for you and this company, who I have personaly ordered from and bought "Autumn Treasure" rapsberry canes from last the autumn, do a mixed selection which looks like just what you are wanting!

I think you need a long summer for autumn raspberries to fruit twice successfully. Mine do, but I live in Dordogne. But some varieties don't do well here because it can be too hot. I grow one called "September". They tend to march around the veg garden and not stay where I planted them.
