Raspberry Peresvet - a trouble-free variety that will surely please you

It is good or bad, but it is human nature to seek the best, already having the good. Yes, and the fashion that exists even in horticulture is pushing for changes: either everyone needs large-fruited raspberries, which are familiar with their size, or universal enthusiasm for repair or multi-colored varieties comes. But contrary to all new trends, traditional berries in all respects are not inferior to their positions. One of them is raspberry variety Peresvet.

The result of many years of work

Raspberry Peresvet is one of the famous "Golden Series" of its varieties created by an outstanding fruit scientist, doctor of agricultural sciences, academician of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences, professor Ivan Kazakov. Two decades of his hard work were devoted to the creation of raspberries of this series, among which are traditional and remodeling, yellow, red, apricot.

The creator of the raspberry variety Peresvet

Variety Peresvet belongs to the category Rubus idaeus, that is, raspberry ordinary. It was obtained at the Kokinsky stronghold of GNU VTISP in the Bryansk region by crossing Stolichnaya raspberry with Solge variety. The resulting variety was named after a native of the Bryansk land - the legendary warrior-monk Alexander Peresvet.

In 1998, the FSBI Gossortkomissiya the variety was accepted for state testing, and in 2000 it was included in the state register and recommended for cultivation in the Central and Volga-Vyatka regions.

The central region includes the following areas: Tula, Smolensk, Ryazan, Moscow, Kaluga, Vladimir, Ivanovo, Bryansk.

The Volga-Vyatka region includes: Udmurtia, Chuvashia, Mari-El, Perm Territory, Sverdlovsk, Nizhny Novgorod and Kirov Regions.

What kind of bird is overexposure

For those who love raspberries, traditional in taste, smell, shape, color, large and not crumbling in their hands on drupes, the Peresvet variety has recently begun to spread among gardeners in all respects.

Universal raspberries Peresvet assigned to steeply fruit varieties

Universal raspberries Peresvet assigned to steeply fruit varieties. Harvest ripens in mid-late terms. In central Russia and in the suburbs, this is usually the end of June.

Raspberry bushes are erect, compact, consisting of an average number of tall shoots with short internodes covered with brown bark. The spikes of the plant have an average density on the stem and a size that is hard after ripening. Their base is purple. On young shoots, which are formed in an average amount, the bark at the age of one year has a characteristic reddish-brown hue and is not covered with a waxy coating.

Relight flowers are medium in size and are located at the level of pestles.

Relight flowers are medium sized

The slightly elongated Peresvet berries are well separated from the fruit bed. They are not striking in their appearance - the usual large raspberry-colored dark ruby ​​color without a luster and with a small amount of villi, but the drupe are tightly connected, even when overripe, it keeps its shape well. Their aging is somewhat stretched over time.

The flesh is sweet and sour taste with a mild aroma.

Raspberry Peresvet gives good yields of quality berries that are well transported. It has good resistance to frost and drought, is practically not affected by such misfortunes as anthracnose, purple spotting, spider and raspberry ticks.

A certain disadvantage of the variety can be called the non-simultaneous ripening of all berries, but for an ordinary gardener this can even be a virtue, since the period of consumption of fresh fruits increases.

Growing Relight

Raspberry Peresvet does not have any special requirements for planting and care that are different from other varieties.

Bushes of this variety are quite compact, therefore, they are planted in the garden according to the scheme 1–1.7x2–2.5, where 1–1.7 is the distance between the bushes in a row, 2–2.5 is the row spacing.

How do I protect seedlings from my curious cats

Raspberries can be planted in spring or autumn. If only a few raspberry bushes are planted, then planting pits 40x40x40 cm in size are prepared for planting in no less than a week. For a whole row of raspberries, they dig a trench 0.6 meters wide and 0.45 meters deep 3-4 weeks before planting.

The lowest layer of the pit or trench filling is the land mixed with fertilizers per one plant:

  • manure or compost - 6 kg;
  • superphosphate - 0.2 kg;
  • ash - 0.2 kg;
  • potassium sulfate - 0.05 kg.

Then they pour the earth without fertilizers and watered to precipitate the soil.

When planting raspberries, the roots of the seedling are straightened so that not one is directed upwards, they are covered with soil, rammed it, watered each bush with three or four buckets of water.

To prevent the growth of shoots to the sides, it is often recommended to organize a barrier along a row, as shown in the diagram below.

From my little horticultural experience, I can say that there is another way to solve this problem. About ten years ago I read that raspberries do not sprout through a series of sorrel. I decided to try, planted sorrel along the raspberries from the side of the neighbor's fence. Raspberries really didn’t get to their neighbors. A few years later I decided to transplant a couple of raspberry bushes from that row to another place. I was just shocked by the picture I saw when I dug up the bushes: all the roots directed towards the neighbors grew to sorrel, and then sharply turned and stretched along it.

Growing Peresvet, like any other raspberry variety, is more convenient if you organize a trellis:

  • the illumination of the shoots with the sun improves, the berries ripen better;
  • the bushes are well ventilated, the likelihood of diseases and the appearance of pests is reduced;
  • Raspberries are easier to process and harvest.

A good effect is obtained by mulching the soil under the bushes (humus, sawdust, mowed grass, straw and other organic materials):

  • the soil retains moisture better;
  • there is no need for weeding and loosening the soil after irrigation and precipitation;
  • decaying mulch becomes an additional fertilizer of raspberries.

Peresvet is fed with organic fertilizers every three years (the first time three years after planting). Minerals, in accordance with the instructions for them, are contributed every year three times during the season:

  • before or at the very beginning of the growing season;
  • during flowering;
  • during the formation of berries.

At the first top dressing, nitrogen fertilizers are mainly applied to stimulate plant growth; potassium is needed in the formation of berries.

Relight is undemanding to irrigation, but responds well to their regularity. Very important autumn watering in the amount of 20 liters per square meter.

Although raspberry Peresvet is declared winter-hardy, one should not lose sight of the fact that it is recommended for cultivation in the Central and Volga-Vyatka regions. When growing it in regions with lower winter temperatures, it is recommended to bend shoots to the ground and rake snow on them. As such, Peresvet hibernates without any problems at all. In the spring, it is important only to raise the shoots in time so that they do not soprel.

Gardeners reviews about the variety Peresvet

I have the best summer raspberries from a neighbor who grew up thirty years old and has been growing for seven years now. And the most nonsense (I hope so far, but I think it's time for the second year and throw it away if there is little use.) From the Kokinsky nursery. Varieties Meteor, Balm, Relight. Prior to this, a reassort from Tula Phytogenetics was thrown out. So buying from a nursery does not mean anything. If there is a good raspberry, then why not transplant it, it will always be possible to throw it away.


Relight planted in the fall in 2013. I tried a little bit this year. The berry is dense and tasty, fragrant. During the season, shoots grew up to 2 meters and showed remanence due to the hot autumn. The internodes are short, which indicates a good yield. But on October 9-10 there was a freeze, the berry did not ripen. This year we will wait for the berry. It’s bad that is prickly. In the photo Relight after frost on October 17.
