Princess - arctic raspberry (Rubus arcticus) - prince's berry. Growing princess on your site

On the fringes of sparse forest on the bumps marshes along the shores of the lakes in the Far East, Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, Kamchatka, across the North European part of our country and in the Urals found valuable berry raspberry. It is also called glade, mamura, hohlyanitsa, crest and arctic raspberry.


Knyazhenika is a perennial undersized shrub of the Rosaceae family 20-30 cm high with creeping rhizomes. Its flowers are bright crimson or pale pink, bisexual. Sweet dark red fragrant berries similar to raspberries and blackberries ripen in late July and August… The berries contain sugars, citric, malic and other acids, tannins and coloring agents, essential oils that give the berries a pineapple flavor, and vitamin C (200-300 mg%). The leaves of the princess also have bioactive properties. They contain vitamin C (400mg%). Flavonoids, saponins and anthocyanins are present in both berries and leaves. This plant has not yet been introduced into the agricultural culture of our country, but it is found in the private gardens of the prince. In Finland, a hybrid of the princess and raspberries, called nectar raspberries, was bred, as well as the variety of the princess Heia. This plant is hardy, although the ground part dies off annually in winter. The increase in yield is influenced by mycorrhiza - a symbiosis of the mycelium of fungi and the roots of winter plants. Mycorrhiza-fungus root has a very beneficial effect on the princess, activating its growth. If conditions favor the development of mycorrhiza,the harvest of berries is increasing. Therefore, when planting plants, it is advisable to add soil with mycorrhizal fungi to the garden soil, planting this mycorrhiza in the garden.

The princess prefers sunny places and soil enriched with humus. It should consist of rotted manure, leaf humus and sand. The prince develops well in "light", breathable, moderately moist soil. If you plant several plants side by side, cross pollination is best. With regard to reproduction, the most reliable way is to reproduce by root suckers. They separate easily and take root well. Also, but less often, the princess reproduces by seeds. Freshly harvested seeds are sown directly into the ground in grooves to a depth of 0.5 cm. After sowing, the grooves are covered with sand, and the planting site is covered with a layer of sphagnum moss.

The prince develops well, but the yield is small. In the spring, root suckers appear, the plant grows, forming a solid green carpet in a dense herbaceous mass. In the garden, the princess is used for borders along paths and flower beds, as well as in small ridges. Berries are consumed both fresh and processed. From them you can make jam, juice, liqueur, tincture, liqueur. And princesses make tea from the leaves. The princess is processed in the same way as raspberries, cloudberries and kumanik. The prince is still not very common in our gardens. But this wonderful plant deserves more attention. I think that selection and hybridization of this wonderful berry is quite accessible to gardeners in our region.

There are other little-known fruit and berry crops that can be grown in your area.
