Perhaps, among the many varieties of raspberries, the most popular among gardeners are varieties bred by the master of raspberry - the famous breeder I.V. Kazakov. His contribution to the development of domestic breeding is truly invaluable. Many varieties, bred by him back in the distant 70-80s of the last century, are still able to compete in many characteristics with modern foreign and Russian varieties of raspberries. For example, raspberry Modesty by Kazakov himself is mentioned in the list of the best varieties of average ripening period. She has many advantages, although not without disadvantages. You can find a description of the Shromnitsa raspberry variety with photos and reviews of those who grew it on their plots in this article.

History of creation and description of the variety

At the end of the 70s, a group of breeders of the Kokinsky stronghold, located near Bryansk, under the leadership of I.V. Kazakov, a variety of raspberries, Modest, was bred by crossing two varieties: Ottawa and Rubin Bulgarian. Back in 1982, the variety was accepted for state variety testing, and only almost 10 years later, in 1990, it was included in the State Register of Breeding Achievements of Russia. This raspberry variety differs in that it was recommended for cultivation in most regions of Russia:

  • Northwest;
  • Central;
  • Volgo-Vyatsky;
  • Central Black Earth;
  • North Caucasian;
  • Middle Volga;
  • West Siberian.

This became possible due to the fact that raspberries are distinguished, on the one hand, by their high winter hardiness, which allows them to grow in the north. Good drought tolerance, on the other hand, is favorable for growing Shy raspberries in the hot and dry conditions of the southern regions.

The bushes are very well formed - they differ in average growth force (they reach no more than two meters in height), they branch well, but at the same time they are not spread widely in different directions. Shoots tend to grow straight. The big advantage of the raspberry variety "Modest" is the almost complete absence of thorns on the shoots. Only at the very bottom of the shoots are there medium length, thornless, greenish thorns.

The shoots of the Modest raspberry are also covered with an intense waxy bloom, which is able to prevent excessive evaporation of moisture, due to which the bushes are distinguished by increased drought resistance.

During the season, 7 to 10 shoots are formed on the bush. This is also very convenient, since the raspberries do not run too far to the sides, while it is quite possible to collect a sufficient amount of planting material for reproduction.

On average, about 2.2 kg of raspberries can be harvested from one bush. In favorable conditions, the maximum yield per bush was 3 kg. Productivity, maybe not the most outstanding, but stable from year to year. You can also note the amicable ripening of berries, which are collected literally in one or two times. With industrial cultivation, the yield of the Modest raspberry is calculated from 80-90 to 120 centners of fruits per hectare.

As for resistance to diseases, raspberry Shy is not at all affected by one of the most common raspberry ailments - anthracnose. She also shows high resistance to the raspberry mite, but it can suffer greatly from the spider mite.

Important! Susceptibility to gray rot is quite high, therefore preventive treatment of the bushes is desirable.

But snowless winters and frequent thaws, raspberries of this variety are able to survive quite calmly due to the fact that the bark at the base of the shoots has good resistance to damping.

It has already been said about the frost resistance of the variety, we can only add that in almost all of the above regions of Russia, raspberries of the Scromnitsa variety can be grown without shelter for the winter.

Raspberries of this variety are also known for their drought tolerance, so even without much watering, the berries will still be on the bushes. But in order to obtain the maximum yield, it is still better not to torment the bushes if possible and water them abundantly, especially during the period of flowering and fruit formation. In this case, the return will also be good.

Characteristics of berries

Berries of the Modest variety differ in the following characteristics:

  • The fruits have a standard round-conical shape;
  • The size of the berries is small - the weight of one berry varies within 2-4 grams;
  • The color of the fruits is also standard - pink-crimson;
  • The separation of berries from fruit is average;
  • Taste qualities are estimated at 4.2 points, a berry of dessert taste, with a slight sourness;
  • The berry has no aroma;
  • Fruits contain 8.8% sugars, 22 mg / 100 g of ascorbic acid;
  • The berries have a high density, do not wrinkle and do not flow during storage - they are well transported;
  • The purpose of the berries is universal - they make tasty and healthy compotes, preserves, jams and other preparations.

Advice! Berries can be frozen as they hold their shape well after defrosting.

The raspberry of the Shromnitsa variety has many advantages that have made it popular in many regions of our country for several decades.

  • The lack of thorns makes caring for raspberries and harvesting berries very convenient.

Gardeners reviews

Raspberry Modest causes positive feedback from all owners of personal plots, where it grows, primarily due to its unpretentiousness and stable fruiting.

Vladimir, 59 years old, Lipetsk region

In recent years, many gardeners have been chasing new products and trying to plant as many different varieties of garden crops as possible on their site in an attempt to get a bountiful and consistent harvest. As for raspberries, large-fruited and remontant varieties have come into vogue. But not everyone knows that such varieties require full and competent care in order to get the desired harvest from them. I have been growing raspberries for over 30 years and during this time several hundred varieties have passed through my hands. Among them there are those that quickly thicken without proper regular maintenance, the berries are crushed, and the bushes can completely leave you without a crop. There are varieties that are so unassuming to care for that even neglected bushes are guaranteed to supply you with raspberries every year. These varieties include the modest raspberry. Yes, the berries are small and it tastes more attractive, but its yield is quite acceptable, it is resistant to diseases, it does not need regular watering and it will grow and delight you with its berries even in areas where raspberries are usually grown under shelters ...

Olga, 45 years old, Bryansk

On my site, the raspberry Modest has been growing for more than 10 years - it was my mother who planted it. I never bothered with her bending and sheltering for the winter, she always grew by herself. Only watered sometimes during hot periods of summer, and occasionally threw various plant residues on top of the roots - usually in the fall. Of course, after fruiting, I must cut off all the shoots that were with berries this summer. There was no more care for her. And the Modest woman makes me and my family happy every year with her rather large and tasty berries. They collect and store well. Its yield quite satisfies me. It doesn't grow much either. A couple of times I dug out the shoots, gave them to friends and acquaintances. The only drawback is that if you delay picking berries, it may crumble, so this process needs to be controlled.

Valentina, 49 years old, Tomsk

In our area, not everyone succeeds in growing good raspberries. So I tried several new products, but all of them did not correspond much to their characteristics, and in especially frosty years they completely froze out. They advised me to purchase a variety of raspberries "Modest" because of its frost resistance, and, in general, unpretentiousness. The berries were tasted already in the first year - they are beautiful, tasty. It has been growing in our country for the third year already - while the winters are going through quite successfully. I did not even cover it, I just threw more plant residues into the root zone in the fall, and in the spring I cut off the slightly frozen tops of the shoots. The variety is really very unpretentious - I recommend it to all working summer residents who have little time to dig in the garden.


Raspberry Modest does not differ in outstanding characteristics, so if your goal is to surprise neighbors and acquaintances, then look for some other more suitable variety. But for gardeners who, for various reasons, cannot pay much attention to their plant pets, this raspberry will be an excellent choice. Even in the most unfavorable years, you most likely will not be left without a raspberry harvest.
