What does a strawberry-raspberry hybrid look like?


Raspberries and strawberries are favorite treats for both adults and children. The superpopularity of these berries stimulates breeders to bring out more and more varieties of these delicacies. Recently, a very interesting variety of these berries has appeared on sale under the promising name of Clubmalina... And such a curiosity is much more expensive than its congeners: raspberries and strawberries. What kind of berry really is: a miracle of selection or consumer deception? Let's figure it out.

The theoretical possibility of a hybrid of strawberries and raspberries

So, raspberry is a shrub, and strawberry belongs to the genus of herbaceous plants. Of course, selection does not stand still, but moves forward by leaps and bounds. But have breeders have already reached such heights that learned to cross grass with bushes? Is it a crossed strawberry and raspberry? Alas, such a miracle is impossible neither from the theoretical side, nor from the practical. But what then do we buy?

Brief description of Strawberry-Raspberry

In fact, under the guise of a hybrid, in our latitudes, a raspberry variety, still little known for our country, called Strawberry-Raspberry, has appeared. Such raspberries are also known under such names.:

  1. Seductive.
  2. Chinese.
  3. Tibetan.
  4. Himalayan.
  5. Strawberry.
  6. Strawberry.
  7. Dwarf.
  8. Rosaline or Rosolistnaya.

This berry came to us from East Asia. In the wild, it occurs on mountain slopes, in mixed forests. In its natural environment, it is a tall semi-shrub, its height reaches 3 meters... The cultural variety, which has taken root in our climatic conditions, is much more modest in size, and does not grow more than 1.5 meters.

The plant is extremely decorative. Its shoots are fluffy and prickly, which makes it possible to use it not only as a tasty treat, but also as a decorative beautiful hedge.

What does raspberry strawberry look like? The name rosalin or rose-leaved, the plant got due to the similarity of leaves with rose leaves, they also resemble a rose with rather impressive spines on the stem. Corrugated leaves of bright green color. The flowers are quite impressive in size (up to 5 cm in diameter), a delicate white shade, with 5 petals. A characteristic feature of this variety is that the flowers get along well with the fruits, and the branches are decorated with beautiful large flowers throughout the fruiting period, which, in tandem with bright scarlet berries, give the plant incredible charm and charm.

The fruits of this plant are also very unusual and beautiful. The berries are large, the largest reach the size of a walnut, a bright scarlet color, resemble strawberries in shape. The fruits are directed upwards, they seem to be drawn to the sun, they are clearly visible even from afar.

The taste of the fruits is also excellent, they are juicy and sweet, with a pleasant, subtle sourness. Up to 5 berries can ripen on one branch, it is a very fruitful variety of raspberries. Berries can be eaten both raw and made into preserves, jams, compotes.

It is almost impossible to find such a berry on the market. This is due to the fact that the fruits are very soft and tender, and do not tolerate transportation well. Therefore, it is not recommended to grow such a berry on an industrial scale.

Growing up: planting and reproduction

This variety is planted like regular raspberries. The place for the beds is chosen mainly on the south side, the plant is quite unpretentious, it can grow both in areas open to the sun and in partial shade. Bushes are planted in pre-made holes, between which there should be a very large distance: 70-100 cm. Row spacing must be at least 1.5 meters.

Such a beauty grows on any soil, but the yield will be great if you still plant it in fertile and loose soil. You can fertilize the holes with peat or organic fertilizer before planting..

The plant is planted either in spring or early autumn.

If you plant raspberries in the fall, you need to do this at the end of August - the first half of September, so that the plant has time to take root before the first frost.

Such a decorative variety of raspberries reproduces by basal processes, which releases quite a lot per season. This feature should be taken into account when landing. To plant a new plant, you just need to carefully dig it up and root it in the right place.

Care features

The plant is completely unpretentious and needs basic care, so growing such a hybrid does not require much effort. Watering is needed abundant and timely (especially in the heat). But you can't overdo it either, if the soil is constantly damp and moist, the raspberries may die. Weeds must be pulled out carefully, since the root system is located very close to the surface. In particularly hot regions, the soil around the plant can be mulched with compost, or humus.

The plant does not particularly need frequent fertilizers.... It is quite enough in early spring to feed the bushes with either organic fertilizer or synthetic universal.

Such a beautiful variety of raspberries is quite frost-resistant. She is tolerates moderately frosty winters, but if the winter is with little snow, and the frosts are quite strong, it is necessary to additionally sprinkle the roots with earth.

With proper care, such raspberries are not only suitable as delicious gastronomic delights, but will delight the eye with their unique beauty and uniqueness.

21 aug 2012. News from Belarus. A hybrid of strawberries and blackberries brought out by the gardener. And a whole collection of unusual varieties of raspberries and apples, reported in.


Description of the plant

So, rosolin is a shrub native to East Asia. It occurs naturally in mixed forests and on mountain slopes. Under natural conditions, its height reaches 3 meters. However, the raspberry that grows in gardens is somewhat more modest in size - no more than 1.5 m in height.

The plant is unusually decorative, therefore it is often used to decorate personal plots rather than as a fruit crop. Tibetan raspberries are also good for hedges, not only delighting the eyes of happy owners, but also protecting the territory from intruders with fluffy thorny branches.

Leaves

The leaves outwardly bear some resemblance to the leaves of a rose, hence the botanical name of the shrub - rose-leaved raspberry. They are bright green with yellowish veins, as if corrugated and collected in 5–7 petioles. In addition, small denticles along the edges give the leaves a special tenderness, charm and beauty.

Flowers

Flowers are large enough up to 5 cm in diameter, single, white, consist of five petals. The flowering of the shrub begins in July and lasts until autumn, and the flowers constantly open next to the ripening berries.

Fruit

Raspberry strawberry berries are juicy, bright red, sometimes the size of a walnut. They grow upward. In shape, they resemble strawberries and, since they do not hide in the foliage, they are very noticeable from afar.

In short, "a hybrid of raspberries and strawberries" is a short shrub with a rounded crown and beautiful leaves, strewn with flowers and berries for a long time, which allows it to play an important role in landscape design, decorating lawns, rock gardens and coniferous plantings.

The unusual raspberry has another similarity with rose bushes, though not the most pleasant one - these are large sharp thorns. The plant is very prickly, so work on planting and processing it must be carried out exclusively with tight gloves. Moreover, even dry branches can scratch, therefore it is better to burn them at the stake as soon as possible.


What is the raspberry-blackberry hybrid valued for?

The situation is quite different with hybrids obtained from crossing the usual raspberries and blackberries. Breeders have long been diligently breeding all new varieties of Ezhemalina, trying to combine in one culture all the most valuable qualities of the two parent crops. And domestic gardeners are happy to grow on their plots, along with red-fruited raspberry varieties, a dark purple yogurt.

What qualities is this amazing berry culture valued for? From blackberries, she received unpretentiousness, high yield and large-fruited, and from raspberries - a pleasant aroma and good winter hardiness.

Ezhemalina has an original sour-sweet taste, which in some varieties only remotely resembles the taste of parent crops. At the same time, most gardeners confidently declare that the taste of raspberry berries is much better than that of ordinary raspberries or blackberries.

When breeding many modern varieties of raspberries with large fruits, raspberry-blackberry hybrids were used. This explains the formation of multi-berry branched brushes, characteristic of blackberries, and the insufficient frost resistance of large-fruited raspberry varieties.


Strawberry-raspberry and raspberry-strawberry

Who can resist and not buy this exotic in the next catalog of fruit and berry crops? There are two combinations: raspberry-strawberry and strawberry-raspberry.

In fact: the strawberries belong to the genus Fragaria and the raspberries to the genus Rubus, how could they be crossed? We have interspecific hybrids, to put it mildly, quite problematic, but here we are talking about interspecific hybrids! It is very curious where sellers get such information in order to come up with "plants of the distant future" ...

It is clear that this scam is one-time - whoever is caught will never buy it a second time, so a bag of strawberry-raspberry seeds costs 500-600 rubles. For interest, we also bought a raspberry-strawberry seedling ...

Instead of a strawberry-raspberry hybrid, a regular strawberry has grown. Although flattened, as if with a cut off tip, there are many such varieties. Bright scarlet, sweet.

And there is no special deception! So what if it's not a strawberry / raspberry hybrid? Well, at least the weed didn't grow for 500 rubles. From the point of view of the law, everything is correct.

Having planted the purchased raspberry-strawberry seedlings according to all the rules of raspberry science, two years ago they received one-year shoots. Outwardly, these were raspberry shoots. Slender, moderately thickened, reddish in color, tall (up to two meters), slightly thorny, with dark green healthy foliage, they inspired hope for a future harvest until autumn.

We have wintered well, and this is a difficult year for raspberries. In the spring they were tied, and by the end of July, shortened fruit twigs were formed from the axils of the leaves, on which up to 4-5 pieces of berries ripened at the same time. Dark red, beautiful rounded shape, sweet, with a harmonious raspberry flavor, juicy, 2.5-3 g. The variety is not bad, fruitful, but strawberry notes were not caught in the berries. Again raspberries, albeit with good inclinations.

From all our experiments, we concluded: in any case, a good variety of raspberries or strawberries will cost less than "market selection" of unknown origin.
