    Thanks for that everybody. I think you've made my mind up for me...

    I got some of these from Aldi in their offer packs of 3 shrubs for 2.49 the other week. I got 'normal' raspberries too.

    I have been growing an autumn fruiting yellow raspberry for a few years now. It has been quite prolific and a really strong grower. However I have replaced it this year with a red variety. Everyone who has tried them think they are wonderful. However there is just something about them that I didn't take to. To me they were just to insipid. Not sure though which variety they were though.

    Bit late... but for me, between them and glem ample the all gold is nicer - it's a much more mild taste. However, I find that they are very delicate. My all golds don't have churn out a lot of fruit mind. Much more than my summer fruiting ones. Bonus is they'll fruit on this years wood too

    Just wanted to comment on the delicate part of them... someone else has mentioned this beefore - SarzWix maybe?

    Only thing that I found a bit odd, as is you notice the little bits (hairy things) on them as you can now see them more. But yep, we made a load of jam from them - so damn nice, much nicer than normal jam.

    Most people think it's going to be marmalade but then when they taste it, are like "whoa? its not organey! hehe".
