A great value raspberry cane collection, containing 6 canes each of the following varieties:
Malling Juno (early) - Tasting the first raspberries of the season is always a treat and Malling Juno is one of the best on the market. The medium to large berries have 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.
Tulameen Pearl (mid) - 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!
Polka (late) - When we replaced Autumn Bliss with Joan J we knew you would be impressed. Now it is time to confirm our replacement for top selling Joan J. A multi-award winner at the National Fruit Show, Polka has exceptional fruit quality and the large, medium red berries are full of fragrant zesty flavour. Bred in Poland with Autumn Bliss as one of its parents, the virtually spine-free raspberry canes will yield double the crop of Autumn Bliss and Polka crops up to 2 weeks earlier, from late July to October. Polka even grows well on less desirable soils. Thoroughly recommended by the D.T. Brown team!
Our specially selected canes are propagated from disease-free certified stock, and will have well developed root systems when you receive them, so they will establish well and give excellent yield.
Floricane varieties fruit on canes produced in the previous year while Primocane varieties produce fruits on current season growth.
