I've just read your little thing about being organic or not on your website and I'd like to congratulate you on being such a breath of fresh air! I'm a keen gardener and also a geneticist and I get so frustrated with the way people who know nothing about things confuse matters by using scientific terms incorrectly. "Organic" is a prime example of this, and it's wonderful that there are still people out there who will not jump on the PC bandwagon and are willing to stand up and put something honest out there for all to see! You cannot imagine how impressed I am with you, congratulations and a big heartfelt "thank you"!

'Autumn Bliss' was the first primocane variety to crop from mid August through to the first frosts in October, providing a useful overlap with such varieties as 'Tulameen'.
Heavy cropping, its most productive month is September. Fruit is medium sized, typically 3.3 grams in weight, mid to dark red with a pleasant flavour and good keeping qualities. Fruit size is maintained well throughout the Season
The short, erect, spiny canes of this variety need only the minimum of support. 'Autumn Bliss' is resistant to root rot.
