Description of Cascade Delight Plants & Fruit:
This is a high yielding raspberry with firm flesh, ideal for packaging and selling in a local market. These big fruit ripen quite late in the season.
The fruit-bearing stems are long, which is good for hand picking but not for machine harvesting. The canes are less spiny than average. Cascade Delight raspberries are certified and grown from virus-tested parent material in the UK.

Growing Cascade Delight Raspberry Plants:
Raspberries are easy to grow, but they do need good conditions: a rich soil that drains well & is kept moist in dry weather, lots of sun and ideally some shelter from strong wind.
This variety is the best for clay soils with poor drainage. They still won't tolerate waterlogged conditions, but they will thrive in slightly damp sites where other varieties may be more prone to root rot.
Background Information on Cascade Delight Raspberry Bushes:
Bred by a collaboration of Washington State, Oregon State & Idaho Universities in 2003.
Please note that in line with general practice, all our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60 cms. Summer fruiting raspberries may, therefore, bear a very few berries in summer following planting but their first full fruiting season will be in the year after. Autumn fruiting raspberries will fruit much better in their first year than their summer fruiting cousins.
