Rubus albescens. Origin: India, Malaysia. Unlike common raspberries from up North that can not tolerate tropical heat, Mysore Tropical Raspberry grows very well in hot humid climates. It grows very fast into a scrambling shrub with flexible stems and tends to bloom and fruit throughout the year. The fruit is red when unripe and purple black when ripe, very juicy and sweet. The clusters contain as many as couple dozen fruit. It is also a very ornamental plant because it has almost white canes and the leaves are green above and whitish underneath. The plant is cold hardy to upper 20s F; young plants are more cold sensitive. Great to grow in large containers and will produce large amounts of fruit. Good drainage is essential for good growth.
