Raspberry Polka - Autumn Fruiting

Raspberry Polka

A new, really good primocane (autumn-fruiting) raspberry cultivar from Poland, Rubus idaeus Polka has the potential to give you crops in summer and autumn. The conical berries are very large and medium-red with a good, fresh flavour, and keep particularly well. Fruit is borne on the current year’s canes, starting to ripen in early August, about ten days earlier than raspberry Autumn Bliss, and will continue into October if the weather remains mild. This raspberry needs no support; simply cut the canes to the ground in February. A small summer crop is produced if some of the canes are left unpruned. The canes are 6’/1.8m tall, and notably disease resistant. Raspberry Polka holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
