- A fantastic recent introduction from Poland!
- They sure know their Raspberries in Poland and have produced arguably the best Raspberry variety on the planet: Great taste, reliable, huge crops, easy to grow, long season - it has it all
- Unlike some of the older Primocane (autumn fruiting) varieties, Polka fruits reliably on this years wood. That means you can expect a good crop in the year you plant it, which is not the case with summer fruiting (Flurocane)
- Expect to see 2.5kg of large, juicy Raspberries per plant in a good year, cropping from August right through to October
- For a full season, combine with a summer fruiting variety and 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).
- Primocane (Autumn fruiting) variety Primocane varieties fruit on this years new wood, so it is important to get the pruning right. Cut back all the canes to the ground after fruiting so that new shoots will grow next spring. That is what will bear your next harvest.MORE

Know Your Plant
Height on arrival:
Time to first crop:
Has been bred for excellent disease resistance. 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
