The subtleties of growing

For the successful cultivation of raspberries of the Caramelka variety, it is necessary to follow the recommendations of the breeders.

Timing and selection of a suitable location

The plant is demanding on soil fertility, watering and the intensity of sunlight. Caramel is planted in open sunny places, on the south side of the site, away from trees and buildings, so that no shadow falls on the raspberries. The soil should be nutritious, loose, permeable to moisture. Raspberries of this variety require protection from the wind.

Preparation of planting material

Seedlings of remontant raspberry varieties Caramelka must have a formed root system, strong stems and large buds. There should be no dry leaves on them. Before planting, the plants are checked for diseases and pests - only completely healthy planting material can be planted.

Landing algorithm

Raspberries of the Caramelka variety are planted in spring, in March, before the start of sap flow and vegetation, or in autumn, in September, early October. Plants planted in autumn take root better and begin bearing fruit earlier.

From 3 to 5 bushes are planted per square meter at a distance of 70 centimeters from each other. Complex fertilizers are applied to the planting pits. The site for planting is pre-dug up and weeds are selected.

Care advice

Raspberries of the Caramelka variety are quite unpretentious, but they will grow well and bear fruit with careful regular care.

Watering and loosening

Bushes need abundant watering, but do not tolerate stagnant moisture. In a rainy summer and autumn, raspberries Caramel does not need additional moisture, but the soil surface must be loosened regularly. This helps to improve soil respiration, and also eliminates weed seedlings, to which the plant is sensitive.

In heat and drought, raspberries need to be watered. The amount of moisture depends on the density of the soil. On average, it takes up to 2 buckets of water per bush.

Top dressing

During the growing season, raspberries of the Caramelka variety are fed 3 times:

  1. At the beginning of growth, after the frost has receded. It is best to use organic feed such as chicken manure. From mineral resources, nitrogen fertilizers are applied in the amount of 15 grams per square meter of plantings.
  2. During flowering. During this period, potash fertilizer is applied (from 10 to 30 grams per 10 liters of water) and superphosphate (15-20 grams).
  3. After picking berries. Plants give all their strength to fruiting, so they need support. To do this, use organic matter, preferably humus or compost, at least a bucket per bush. With dry soil, it must be well wetted.

Compliance with the rules of feeding ensures a full harvest and excellent health of raspberries.

Garter to the trellis

Caramel has strong vertical stems, but with a large harvest or strong winds, it will have to be tied up. This will help prevent branch breakage and preserve all the berries. Also, the fastening on the trellis helps to ventilate the plants and provide uniform lighting, which serves as partial protection against a number of diseases.


In the fall, all sprouted shoots are cut from the ground, leaving areas no more than 3 centimeters high. All cut and fallen leaves must be removed, since pests and pathogens can hibernate on plant residues. In the spring, only frozen, dried and damaged branches are cut.


Raspberry Caramel is sensitive to frost and dry winds, therefore it is necessary to organize shelter and snow retention on the site. It is necessary to cover the plantings a week before the onset of persistent cold weather, otherwise the plants will be wiped out due to excess moisture.
