Description How to Grow Delivery

Both ornamental and edible, Japanese Wineberry makes an attractive climbing shrub for a wall, fence or trellis, with bright red, furry stems in winter followed by lime green foliage studded with delicious, bright red fruit.

Ready to harvest in August, Wineberries are great for closing the gap between summer and autumn raspberries. The juicy fruit has a sweet and tangy taste and is delicious eaten straight off the bush although it can be cooked like raspberries.

Japanese Wineberries are still an unusual crop in the UK but they are incredibly easy to grow, just treat them the same way you would a summer raspberry. Plants are self-fertile and their furry bristles deter insects, so they’re rarely bothered by pests.

Height and spread: 2-3m (6.5-10ft).

Grow Japanese Wineberry in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. The stems will require support - either wires stretched between posts or trellis/arches etc are suitable. Plant in a row, allowing 1.5m between plants. Water well and mulch after planting.

Japanese Wineberries produce fruit on the previous year’s canes. After harvesting, cut out the old, fruited canes, leaving strong young new canes which should be tied together over winter. In spring, untie them and train along the support system.
