- Fruits very late in the summer, perfect if you're planning on having fruit right the way through
- A very hardy variety, and reliable too as it flowers later, avoiding late frosts which can destroy the flowers before they set
- A good aromatic flavour, perfect for making sauces or jam
- Expect to see moderate yields of mid sized, orange-red Raspberries August into September
- For a full season, combine with an early summer fruiting variety and maybe even a autumn variety to enjoy Raspberries from June to October!
- Plant on a sunny spot in rows, with 50cm between canes and tie into supports as they grow. Can even be planted in a large pot (40cm+ in diameter).
- Flurocane (summer fruiting) variety Flurocane varieties fruit on last years wood, so it is important to get the pruning right. Cut back the canes that fruited at the end of the summer, leaving 6/8 that didn't fruit to grow onto next year. That is what will bear your next harvest. Trim them back to a bud approx 10cm above ground in late Feb, to encourage strong spring growth)

Not what you were looking for?
Shows good resistance to common pests such as aphids. Your biggest problem, as with most soft fruit, is that they are so delicious that local wildlife will want to eat them too. Grow in a polytunnel, or use a fruit net to keep birds off.MORE
Keep well watered
Water in thoroughly when planting. Raspberries prefer moist soils so make sure that they are well watered throughout summer, especially during drier periods. 1/2 time a week increasing to every other day when hot/ dry.MORE
Full sun means receiving direct sun for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summer.MORE
Prefers fertile, well draining soil.
Loam or sandy soil is perfect. You should also consider digging in some organic matter/ compost when planting to improve the soilMORE
No need to feed
Don't worry, this isn't a hungry plant so your food bills won't be going up!MORE
Requires pruning in autumn/ winter
Primocane - during autumn, cut down all canes that bore fruit this year. Aim to leave 6 of the strongest new canes and then prune away the rest down to ground level. Flurocane - Prune in late winter, cutting back all of the canes right down to ground level. New growth will come bearing this years fruitMORE
