Long Cropping Raspberry Fruit Canes Collection
Our specially selected canes are propagated from certified stock and grown on in well drained, sandy soil. These favourable growing conditions ensure raspberry canes which have a well developed root system and are ready to start producing a large number of new fruiting canes in the first full season after planting.
Collection includes 18 canes, 6 each of:
Raspberry Malling Juno (Early Season) - Very early to harvest, giving medium to large berries with a firm texture and a deliciously sweet flavour - just perfect for eating fresh. The spine-free canes are leafy, easy to handle and prune and, the fruits are well presented, so picking is easy too! Cropping from early to late June (even earlier if grown under cover), plants are known to have excellent disease resistance as well. Bred by East Malling Research. Harvest June.
Tulameen Pearl (Mid Season) - Tulameen Pearl is far superior to the popular Tulameen which we have sold in the past. We think this vigorous new strain is a real find and you are sure to agree it’s a winner. It has a high yield with berries which are larger and brighter and the fruit is firmer so keeps better once picked, though we doubt these fruits will last long in any household with a taste like this! Good disease resistance too. Superior in every way – we can’t resist it!
Raspberry Polka (Late Season) - Bred by Dr. Jan Danek, one of the world's foremost raspberry breeders, Polka is a very recent introduction to the raspberry world. The large and juicy berries have a mouth-wateringly sweet flavour and can produce up to 2.5kg of fruit per cane. Cropping from July through to October, the canes are virtually spine free and show good resistance to disease. Harvest July-August.
Floricane varieties fruit on canes produced in the previous year while Primocane varieties produce fruits on current season growth.
