Miko, I too use Stevia and Agave. My hubby uses it to make jam with. We have raspberries and he makes some yummy jam.
After the raspberries are over for the season you cut the old canes down to the ground. There will be new canes that have come up during the growing season. You leave those canes and they will bare fruit in the fall for the everberring type. After I finish picking the fall berries I cut the cane back to just below where the last fruit was. Then the next year I get a crop on that cane in June. Remember to leave only three of four of the strongest looking canes on each plant. They will produce better.
Miko - Look up The Fruit Salad Tree Company - it is located in Emmaville - far North New South Wales. That is where I bought all my multi fruit trees from. I have an apple tree with 3 different types on it, a peach tree with 2 different types on and you can pick from a selection what you want grafted onto the tree - you can have up to 5 different say Citruses and so on. I also bought them as gifts for people and they have all survived being in pots whilst we built and this has been their first season in the ground. They are not cheap but they are good stock is all I can say! I initially saw them at a Gardening Exhibition and was intrigued by the different types of fruit on one tree. They have also exhibited at gardening shows in Melbourne as far as I know.
I did see a gardening show on TV where an old migrant gardener in Victoria had grafted his own various fruit trees. Worth a try I guess??
Hope this helps you somewhat.
