Gardeners are known to be experimenting enthusiasts. That is why many exotic plants grow on their sites, differing in size and color of fruits. Interest in berry crops is also high, since the assortment is quite extensive.
Raspberry Golden Domes are just such a series, as their berries are golden yellow in color. A description of the variety, characteristic features, reviews and photos of gardeners will be presented below, so that our readers have the opportunity to understand whether to take raspberries or not.
The raspberry variety Golden Domes was created by Russian breeders. Today it is on the lists of the State Register. The plant of the remontant type is recommended to be grown in the Central Region of Russia, but self-fertile raspberries have long stepped over the proposed boundaries.
Variety Zolotye Kupola remontantny, with medium branching, spreading. The height of the bush ranges from 1.3-1.5 m. The growth of erect shoots is moderate, which has a positive effect on leaving. There are few offspring of the first year on the raspberry variety, they are easy to distinguish by their light green color and slight pubescence and waxy bloom. In addition, they are much thinner than two-year-old shoots. On two-year-olds, the bark is pale brown.
Important! The thorns of this type of remontant raspberry are present on any shoots along the entire length, but they are thin and, according to gardeners, do not cause inconvenience.
Leaf plastics are medium in size, deep green in color. Slight pubescence and wrinkling are present. Raspberry leaves of the Golden Dome variety are slightly curled.
The berries are hemispherical, weighing up to 3.8 grams. They are located on a short stalk, well separated. When torn off and processed, the particles will not separate, the raspberries retain their integrity. The berries have a slight pubescence, at an early stage of ripening they are yellow, slightly overripe they acquire the color of an apricot.
Important! Raspberry fruits with a yellow color do not cause allergic reactions, so they can be safely included in the diet of children and pregnant women.
The fruits are tender, juicy with subtle notes, somewhat different from the usual raspberry flavor: the berries of the Golden Dome variety are sweetish-sour. If we consider the composition, then raspberries contain 13.8% of dry matter, sugar 6.4%, ascorbic acid C 17.8 mg /%.
According to the description of the variety, reviews of gardeners and the photos sent, the fruiting of the remontant raspberry Golden Dome is abundant. You can see for yourself.
As a rule, with the organization of proper care and adherence to agricultural technology, more than two kilograms of amber berries are harvested from the remontant raspberry bush. Farmers set the yield bar within 100 centners of raspberry varieties per hectare.
Attention! Raspberry Golden domes bear fruit in two waves: the first ripening of yellow berries occurs in June-July, the second in August-September.
Characteristics of the variety
To obtain information about the characteristics of the variety, descriptions and photos are not always enough. It is important for gardeners to know the positive and negative sides of the Golden Dome raspberry in order to decide on its cultivation.
- Ripening terms. Raspberry varieties are medium early, fruiting is extended from June to the first frost.
- Productivity. As already noted in the description, the Zolotye Kupola variety gives stable yields.
- Using. Raspberries have a universal purpose: they can be eaten fresh, prepared juices, compotes, preserves, jams. During heat treatment, useful qualities are not lost.
- Keeping quality. Fresh fruits keep well in the refrigerator.
- Transportation. Berries of the remontant variety Zolotye Kupola do not lose their presentation during long-term transportation, which is highly welcomed by farmers and gardeners who grow raspberries for sale.
- Survival. The repaired raspberry variety withstands not only short-term drought, but also frosts up to 22 degrees. Only in regions with a sharply continental climate will the beds have to be covered.
- Diseases and pests. The originators of the variety took care of the immunity of the Golden Dome variety, so it rarely gets sick. As for pests, they need to be dealt with.
Gardeners do not notice any particular drawbacks.

Choosing a place
Raspberry ridges, in order to get a stable harvest, need to be selected wisely:
- First, it must be a well-lit place.
- Secondly, the ridges are oriented from north to south in order to ensure the warming of the raspberry bushes by the sun and air circulation.
- Thirdly, groundwater should not be low.
- Fourthly, the remontant raspberry variety Zolotye Kupola prefers soil with a pH of 5.5-6.5.
How to determine acidity
There are many ways to determine the acidity of the soil, and it is not necessary to have a litmus test. Each gardener grows a currant or bird cherry in the garden, so they will become the main helpers:
- you need to boil water (1 glass) and brew 3-5 leaves;
- cool the infusion to room temperature;
- add soil to the glass.
Now it remains to observe the reaction of the infusion. Red staining of the solution signals acidic soil. Green color is about slight acidity. If the water turns blue, then the soil at the raspberry planting site is neutral.
Correcting the ground
If the test indicates an increased or moderate acidity of the soil, the following measures can be taken:
- Slaked lime. Fast acting fertilizer containing magnesium and calcium. It is introduced 14 days before planting raspberries. On clay and loamy soils, 500 grams of slaked substance is needed, on sandy soils - 300 grams. With a slight acidity, 300 and 200 grams are sufficient, respectively.
- Furnace ash (ash). Wood ash not only reduces the acidity of the soil, but also saturates it with nutrients. After all, the organic fertilizer contains many trace elements, including phosphorus and potassium.
- A piece of chalk. This substance can be applied even on soils with neutral acidity.
Before planting remontant raspberries, the Golden Domes are dug up in two weeks. A large amount of organic matter is necessarily introduced: manure, compost, humus. When planting in a trench or pit, a ten-liter bucket is added per square meter. The depth of the seats is about 50 cm, as 20 of them fill the drainage.
Raspberries are a plant that is demanding not only for nutrient soil, but also for drainage. Many gardeners advise to fill the bottom of a trench or hole not only with stones and broken bricks, but also with so-called firewood. These can be cut twigs and tree branches. In their opinion, during decay, this drainage nourishes the raspberry roots. From above, soil is poured onto the drainage and spills well with water so that no air voids remain.
If raspberry seedlings were purchased in the nursery or received by mail, they must be soaked in water. You can add potassium permanganate or wood ash. The water treatment will nourish the shoots with moisture and breathe life into the seedlings. Before planting, the seedlings are cut, leaving 4-5 buds.
Advice! Good raspberry seedlings of different varieties can be purchased by mail from the firms Sady Sibiri, Sady Altai, Bekker.
When planting raspberry seedlings, you need to be careful. The upper buds should be level with the surface. After planting raspberries, the soil must be trampled down to squeeze out the air. Then water abundantly. The soil will settle down a little, thereby tightly clinging to the roots of the raspberries. The ridges must be mulched to retain moisture.
According to the description and reviews, remontant raspberries of the Golden Dome variety are a great lover of water, although they can survive a short-term drought. Watering should be abundant, per square meter from 30 to 40 liters of water.
Weeds that appear should be removed immediately so as not to produce pests. Watering should be accompanied by surface loosening of the soil.
When the remontant raspberry grows to 80 cm, the first garter is carried out to the trellis. This procedure not only saves the plants from damage, but also provides each shoot with uniform illumination and free air circulation.
As for fertilizing, 2-3 years after planting the Golden Dome raspberries, you do not need to fertilize the ridges if the soil was well filled. Although watering with an extract of wood ash or infusion of green grass will not harm the plants.
When growing raspberries of the Golden Dome variety in the southern regions, planting is not covered. But in regions with a more severe climate, the ridges must be sprinkled with a layer of soil to ensure a comfortable wintering.
Pruning remontant raspberries is a must. This allows you to increase productivity, relieves planting of pests. The fact is that insects and disease spores most often accumulate in two-year-old shoots.
Pruning is carried out in the fall. At the same time, two-year-old shoots that have already borne fruit are necessarily cut out. The first year replacement shoots, which also yield summer crops, can be cut at 3 cm or left to winter.
Sanitary pruning of raspberries is carried out in the spring. Weakened and diseased shoots are cut at the root. Overwintered shoots are cut 20-30 cm. Shoots of the first year are cut when they reach a height of 80-90 cm in order to stimulate the appearance of lateral branches on raspberries.
During the summer it is necessary to thin out the plantings. Despite the fact that the remontant raspberry Golden Dome, according to gardeners, does not give a large amount of growth, some of it still needs to be cut out.

Kira, 41 years old, Ryazan. I really like the yellow-fruited varieties of raspberries. I also have Golden Domes. A wonderful plant: long-term fruiting, in two waves. The berries are large and tasty. But most of all attracted by disease resistance. For 5 years of cultivation, the variety has never been processed with anything. Although there are always a lot of problems on other plantings of raspberries. In the spring, I sprinkle densely plantings and soil with ash, and when the first leaves appear, I spray it with iodine solution: a tablespoon of medicine for 10 liters of water. That's all.

Ordered seedlings of the Golden Domes raspberry variety last fall. Immediately dropped off. I will open it in the spring and see how we overwintered. I'll write about the results somehow.
