You'll be picking baskets of plump, conical Raspberries from late August until frost and sampling their delicious succulence as you move down each row. The glossy, pinkish red fruit is firm, with small drupelets, and releases easily from the stem. With canes that are self-supporting and smooth (no spines!), harvesting is much pleasanter. 'Joan J', which is also resistant to most insect pests, received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. Cut all the canes back to the ground in late winter. PP 18,954
