Kiwi Gold is one of the ever blooming raspberries which bloom summer and fall. Known for its extremely sweet flavor, this hybrid was developed in New Zealand, but is now a favorite worldwide.

Choose a spot in the garden with good drainage in full sun. Extremely hardy plants, once established will produce a crop for many years beginning in the second year.

PLANTING DIRECTIONS:
1. Plant canes 2 feet apart creating hedgerows that are 10 feet apart. Dig a hole two times the width of the root ball in good loose garden soil with a pH of 5.8 to 6.5 amending if necessary.
2. Remove plant from packaging and lightly loosen the bottom of the root ball to release the roots as you set it in place in the hole.
3. Keep the top of the root ball even with soil surface and fill in around the roots. Lightly tamp dirt around your newly planted raspberries.
4. Water well and add additional soil if necessary and water again.
5. Keep weed-free, watered when necessary and pruned regularly to maintain a quality crop. Fertilizer may be applies in early spring before sprouting and again in late May.

HARVEST TIME: Early summer and fall

HABIT: Raspberry canes produce exotic golden berries that are extremely sweet. This gold raspberry holds its shape and is non crumbling. Resistant to powdery mildew.

USAGE: Fresh eating, jams and jellies, freezes well, juices, desserts and baking.

PLANTING TIPS: For a summer and fall crop; prune back tall weak canes early in the spring. Then after the first harvest remove the canes that produced fruit for a second crop in the fall.

Comments about American Meadows Raspberry Kiwi Gold:

I Planted these this spring and i've already had a summer harvest on some plants and one is still putting out berries on the summer crop while the new primocanes are getting ready to ripen soon, nice to have overlapping harvests between summer and fall harvests, yet while still putting out new suckers these are a nice addition to my other red berry patch....wonderful taste like pineapple or apricot ..a real tropical flavor i enjoy because of the difference from my red varieties.......highly recommend these raspberry bushes from American Meadows !

      Never planted berries before and likely did not plant this one in the right place with the right soil ammendments. However, this plant, unlike some of the other berries I planted did survive but is only several inches tall after a season.

          Comments about American Meadows Raspberry Kiwi Gold:

          I had a nice patch of Kiwi Gold raspberries several years ago and am thrilled to be able to start a patch of them again in a new location. I have grown the more common varieties of both red and yellow (Heritage, Fall Gold, etc.) but none compared to these. Vines were easy to maintain and took a lot of abuse- I was a beginning gardener with my first batch. I didn't have any issues at all with diseases. Berries were very sweet, not too seedy, true raspberry flavor. Produced reliably for years. I've since read that we don't find yellows in the grocery store because the higher sugar content makes them soft and difficult to ship well. I mixed yellow and red berries for freezer jam and it was scrumptious.

            Once I recieved my Kiwi Gold raspberry I was happy to get them in the ground in late April, since then they have been growing more and more got new bulbs and berry now just wanting on them to turn yellow. The bugs try to bother them but not as much at all. I believe these will make good in any gardners ,raspberry garden.And yes I recommend it.

                  Comments about American Meadows Raspberry Kiwi Gold:

                  I have been very impressed by the Kiwi Gold Raspberry. The fall crop of berries produces right up until the first hard frost. Care is minimal, just the basic pruning, fertilizing and weeding. The only complaint I have heard is that it doesn't look like a raspberry but it sure tastes like one and is very sweet.

                      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
