If you would like to enjoy an extended season of red Raspberries for fresh eating, desserts, jam, or freezing, we offer a collection that will do the job. 'Prelude' (PP 11,747) is an early season summer berry that also repeats with a smaller crop of flavorful fruits in the fall. Its sibling, 'Encore' (PP 11,746), ripens in late midseason, producing large berries on sturdy, upright, and nearly spineless plants. Both are hardy and vigorous and come from the Cornell Small Fruit Breeding Program in Geneva, NY. The earliest of the fall everbearing varieties, 'Polana' (PPAF) guarantees a good crop even in northern gardens. It bears in early August here in Connecticut. Our supplier recommends giving 'Polana' extra fertilizer in May and June. Click on Growing Guide for further information.
Our sampler contains one of each variety; 3 plants total. 2-year-old plants.
