The best raspberry in the world for processing!

We produce our ELITE certified Willamette raspberry seedlings from original planting material that came from the USA.

Willamette is a uniform raspberry variety with large, tasty fruits with an average weight of 5.5 g, elongated conical shape, dark red color, which are excellent for freezing and further processing.

Harvesting season of Willamette starts in mid-June and lasts until the end of July.

Willamette is a compact, medium-growing plant with semi-erect shoots, resistant to diseases and pests.

The Willamette harvesting season in the lower regions starts around June 20th, and in the higher regions starts around July 1st. Harvesting takes about 30-35 days.

Willamette has fruits with an average weight of 5.5 g, compact shape, intense dark red color and excellent properties for freezing and processing. The taste of the fruit is very pleasant with a higher presence of acids and as such it is the most wanted for processing in the world and domestic market.

Willamette is a medium-bush raspberry variety with semi-erect shoots that are easy to manipulate. Planting is done in autumn or spring at a distance of 0.25 x 2.2 m (18,000 pcs/ha). A large number of root shoots and leaving buds in the right time will provide conditions for a good selection of shoots which are to be tied down and bear fruit in the following year.

It is best to use certified FRIGO or green container seedlings that are planted during autumn or spring on well-prepared soil.

After selecting the plot, the soil is first properly sampled in several places, at a depth of 0-30 cm, and a chemical and, if necessary, mechanical analysis of the soil is performed, based on which detailed recommendations are given for soil preparation and planting.

As a mandatory agrotechnical measure, irrigation should be provided with a drop-by-drop system, which is also used for feeding with water-soluble fertilizers, and in case of severe droughts, it is recommended to provide a system of sprinklers (watering sprinklers) that are used only overnight when the plants cool down.

Shadowing has recently been necessary agrotechnical measure, i.e. the installation of a net of 30-40% shade in order to reduce solar radiation, reduce temperatures by 5-6°C and avoid fruit burns, increase air circulation, protect field against possible hail and help workers harvest fruits easier and more efficiently throughout the sunny days, thereby increasing work performance. Yields increase up to 20% and the quality of the fruit is incomparably better.

Planting varietal pure (certified) and healthy planting material and applying all agrotechnical measures in an average year, in a full crop, can ensure a yield of 10-15 t/ha.
