Atherton Raspberry (Rubus probus)

Atherton Raspberries (Rubus probus) are fruiting in the garden soon (June). This Australian native plant has a flavour similar to traditional raspberries. A native dry rainforest plant that will tolerate a range of soil types. They grow in stands with canes to about 2m high. They prefer full sun and regular water for prolific fruiting. A truly delicious bush snack.
