Raspberry Malling Promise - Summer Fruiting

Raspberry Malling Promise

A well established summer-fruiting raspberry, Rubus idaeus Malling Promise produces heavy crops of firm, rose-red fruit with a good flavour, and is one of the earliest raspberries to crop. As a summer-fruiting raspberry, the canes will need support, and pruning out of fruited canes after harvest. White, pollinator-friendly flowers and deep green leaves, pale yellow in autumn, make this an attractive raspberry, and it is a vigorous grower with spiny stems. It tolerates poorer soils than some raspberries but it’s best to dig in compost or manure to help with water-retention. Raspberry Malling Promise is notably virus-resistant.
