Buy Japanese wineberry Japanese wineberry: Heavenly sweet and delicious berries

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Still quite rare here in the UK, these incredibly sweet, orange red to deep burgundy-red berries are delicious if picked and eaten straight from the bush when they ripen in August. They also can be cooked up in the same way as you would raspberries (which they are closely related to). They come on a large, deciduous bush that is easy to grow, although you will get the best fruit when it is trained against a sunny, south-facing wall or fence.

  • Garden care: Prepare the planting area well, removing all perennial weeds and adding plenty of well-rotted garden compost or manure, and plant at 45cm intervals.

Very tasty


It's a bit early yet to write an accurate review as I haven't had the plant a full year yet. However I did manage to get a few fruits last year to at least taste them. They are lovely and sweet and I look forward to trying more of them this year. If the plant survives our climate well, then I would consider buying more of them.




Great addition to our garden


As well as producing lots of berries, the Japanese Wineberry, with bright red edible berries in July and August, and in autumn red stems, is attractive. It is quite vigorous! But we have a contained garden and will need to keep it under control. It has got established and fills a place with both an edible and decorative plant (and is more attractive than alternatives like loganberries or raspberries).

Fruit canes/bushes I am keen to purchase raspberry canes to grow this year. Before I purchase, can you guarantee that your canes are 'virus free'?

Carol Fry

Hello There, All our fruit is virus free, but certificates are only issued when plants cross borders. We only deliver to mainland UK, so we do not have certificates, but keep in mind that all our hardy plants are also covered by a 1 year guarantee.
