Variety of remontant raspberry «Samokhval» – another native of the Nizhny Novgorod nursery, the brainchild of the famous breeders Vladimir and Ilya Shiblev. In 2018, the variety was included in the State Register of the Russian Federation, and in 2019 – entered the market.  

Another name for "Samokhvala" – Nizhegorodets-2. It is obtained by crossing the domestic raspberry "Karamelka" and "Nizhegorodets". At the same time, the variety not only inherited the best qualities of its parents, but also surpassed them in many respects. Among the most important advantages of raspberries: large size and sweet taste of berries, high yield, transportability, winter hardiness, adaptability to almost all climatic zones of Russia.

Cultivar Features

Samokhval bushes powerful, with an average height of 1.3-1.5 m, thorns are present mainly in the lower part of the shoots, which greatly simplifies the collection of berries and the care of raspberries. Feature of the plant – active development of replacement shoots. On the one hand – this is a plus, for those who are going to cultivate raspberries on their own, on the other hand, you have to constantly make sure that the plantings do not thicken too much.

The fruits of "Samokhval" large, average weight 6-10 gr. However, with the use of modern agricultural technology, the first variety testers received simply huge berries, weighing up to 20 grams.

Those who grow raspberries for sale will be pleased with their appearance and commercial qualities –  flattened conical shape, classic ruby red color, glossy skin. The drupes of the fruit are tightly linked to each other, the skin is elastic, the pulp is juicy, but at the same time dense, therefore, during collection and transportation, raspberries do not fall apart and do not flow. The crop can be harvested using mechanized equipment.

Well, the sweet taste and delicate aroma of "Samokhval" everyone who tries the berry will certainly praise.

The main wave of the summer harvest of raspberries of this variety falls on August, the specific dates depend on the climatic zone – the further north, the later. The second wave of harvest when growing a variety as a remontant will ripen in the second half of autumn. However, due to the fact that in regions with early cooling, the variety does not have time to give most of the second harvest, and the berries become smaller, gardeners grow remontant raspberries, like summer ones, i.e. spend one full-fledged picking of berries per season.

When growing a variety in closed ground – greenhouses, booths, – weather conditions to a lesser extent affect both the timing of fruiting and the method of growing raspberries.

The yield of "Samokhval", according to the originators, in the second and subsequent years of planting, reaches – 8 kg per bush, up to 18 t/ha. The variety is suitable for both private and industrial cultivation. In the first season after spring planting, the variety produces a modest harvest, but very large berries.

Planting and care

According to the breeders, the raspberry variety "Samokhval" is adaptable to any climate – frosts up to –30°C, summer heat, winds, and does not require excessive care.

Nevertheless, garden raspberries, like any cultivated plant, respond with a good harvest to timely feeding, regular watering and favorable growing conditions.

Seedling selection. When purchasing Samokhval raspberry seedlings, pay attention to the condition of the shoots and root system.

The shoots must be fully formed, strong, without spots and growths. Wet green flesh should be visible under the stiff bark. At the base of the seedling, buds must be formed – at least three pieces, they will give the first shoots after planting.

Healthy seedlings have a well-branched and moistened rhizome, without signs of dryness and disease. The roots are not brittle, about 15 cm long.

Beware of fakes! "Samokhval" a new variety on the farmer's market that produces high-end raspberry crops, and therefore seedlings are not cheap. This can lead to abuse. Purchase planting material in specialized nurseries & nbsp; – this is a guarantee that you will grow exactly the raspberry variety that you bought and will not bring  diseases and pests to your plantations.

Choosing a location. When choosing the ideal site for raspberries, correlate your choice with the following criteria:

  1. Maximum sunlight, minimum shade, good air circulation – great option. North side, constant shade from the house or trees, drafts – poor choice for planting raspberries.
  2. Loose, light, fertile soil with normal to slightly acidity. Loam, supechanka, chernozem – this is good. Heavy, clayey, acidic soils – bad.
  3. Plots where they grew before raspberries: legumes and cereals, herbs, calendula, – fit 100%. Beds after tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplants, other raspberries or blackberries – can be used after 6-7 years, not earlier.
  4. Moderately moist soil, flat terrain or slight slope, – approved by agriculturists. Lowlands, areas with "lakes" after rains, steep slopes and close groundwater flow, – not recommended for planting raspberries.

Landing. Variety "Samokhval" planted in mid-autumn or early spring.

It is advisable to prepare the site for spring planting in advance, best of all in the fall. The soil on the selected segment is dug up, all plant residues are removed, large clods of earth are broken. The soil is enriched with organic matter and / or rotted mullein with the addition of superphosphate and a complex of mineral fertilizers and dug again.

In early spring, they start planting raspberries. To do this, prepare trenches or separate holes for seedlings. The choice of planting method depends on the number of bushes and site capabilities.

In industrial cultivation, raspberries are planted in a tape way, leaving row spacings 3.0-3.5 m wide, so that agricultural machinery can fit between the rows. On the garden plot, a tact of 1.5-2 meters will be enough. Between the bushes in the trenches retreat – 40-50 cm, between individual holes – 70 cm - 1 m. Depth of pits – 40-50 cm. Hole diameter – 40 cm

A nutrient mixture of topsoil, compost, ash and humus is added to the bottom of the pit. A seedling is placed on top and added dropwise a little lower (2-3 cm) of the root collar. The soil is accepted. The planting is watered abundantly, then mulched with peat or rotted sawdust, so the moisture at the roots is better preserved. Seedlings are pruned, leaving cuttings 30-40 cm high.

As the bushes of Samokhval grow, tied to a trellis or separate supports, this streamlines planting, simplifies the care of raspberries and facilitates harvesting. Each plant gets more air and sunlight. In addition, under the weight of the crop, the bush will not bend down to the ground.

Irrigation. In order for the raspberries to grow sweet and juicy, do not forget to water the plants regularly and in a timely manner. In terms of frequency and abundance of watering, be guided by the amount of precipitation. In moderately warm and dry weather, the beds are watered once a week. Water is supplied under the roots of plants through special grooves dug in advance along the rows. Or organize a drip irrigation system. The latter saves the strength and time of gardeners, and is also considered an excellent prevention of fungal diseases, because. water does not fall on the leaves and stems of plants.

In case of severe drought and heat, the frequency and abundance of watering is increased up to 2-3 times in 7 days. Sprinklers are used with caution. To do this, choose early morning or evening hours so that wet raspberries do not bake under the sun. In rainy weather, watering is stopped. Stagnation or excess moisture leads to root rot.

An important event after watering – careful loosening of the soil around the bush, this prevents the formation of an earthen crust, which blocks the access of air to the roots.

Feeding. All seasonal feeding of raspberries can be divided into 4 main stages:

  1. Early spring. Organic fertilizers are used: biohumus, mullein, chicken manure, infusions of nettles and weeds. Before the start of sap flow, you can add nitrogen, saltpeter, mineral and vitamin complexes for berry crops.
  2. Before flowering plants are offered potassium and phosphorus.
  3. During the fruiting period, you can support raspberries with superphosphate.
  4. In autumn, after harvesting 100% of the crop, raspberries are fertilized with organic matter, for example, rotted manure, compost, humus. Then water it abundantly so that the fertilizer goes into the soil.

Do not forget to prevent the appearance of diseases and pests, treat the plant with special compounds for fruit and berry crops, according to the instructions on them.

Pruning. Starting the autumn pruning of raspberries, you must clearly decide what kind of crop you want to get next year.

If you decide to grow a variety like a summer variety and get one bountiful harvest per season – just cut the bushes at the root. In the spring, plantings will give young shoots, on which a decent harvest will ripen in the summer. This method of pruning is considered to prevent the appearance of pests that you deprive of a wintering place. In addition, it reduces to zero the chances of a raspberry tree not to survive the winter. 

If you are going to grow a variety as a remontant, i.e. get two crops a year. In the fall, after picking berries, it is enough for you to cut out the second-year shoots that bear fruit, and leave the young ones to winter. In early spring, remove all weak frozen stems, leaving 5-7 strong shoots per 1 meter of planting.

During the season, young shoots are actively growing, in order to avoid thickening of the raspberries and chopping berries, thin out the plantings in a timely manner.

Preparing for winter. The young shoots remaining for the winter are removed from the supports and bent to the ground. In regions with severe or little snowy winters, raspberries are additionally covered & nbsp; agrofiber. When pruning plants "at the root", in order to avoid freezing of the soil, the site is mulched. In the spring, it is important to remove the shelter in time so that the plants do not start to rot.
