The raspberry plant possesses the potential to produce fruit on primocane tips in autumn, in addition to the main crop which is borne on floricanes in spring. This habit is usually described as primocane-fruiting (PF). PF cultivars are grown as a perennial crop with annual canes - that is, canes emerge in spring, grow through summer, fruit in autumn and are pruned to the ground in winter.
