Special Attributes

The Mysore Raspberry, also known as Snowpeaks, Ceylon, Black, Indian, or Hill raspberry, is a native of Burma/India, specifically to the lower Himalayas and was introduced in the U.S. in the 1950's. Mysore has been grown successfully in mountainous regions (up to 10,000 ft. elevation), and it is one of very few raspberries able to grow at lower elevations, like those found in the tropics.

Hardy and with the ability to fruit in the southernmost USDA Zones 8-10b, where most raspberries wont grow, Mysore is a large, everbearing shrub that can grow from 8 to 15 feet tall under ideal conditions. Plants are hardy to at least 20F, but mature plants can survive into the teens.

The tasty raspberry fruits turn from red to purple, and then black when ripe. Clusters can contain more than a dozen ripe, very pleasant black raspberries, and the seeds found in the Mysore berries are small, and not objectionable. These raspberries are high in manganese and supply 60% of the recommended daily allowance.

For heaviest yields, some afternoon shade is best, and pruning to discourage spring and summer flowering is recommended. December flowering is ideal for fruit to develop and ripen in February thru May to June, and will provide for larger size and number of berries. 

Cultural Preferences

The Mysore Raspberry can be grown in partial shade and full sun in a wide range of well-drained soils with average fertility.
