Polka Raspberry Canes - Late Season

Description of Polka Plants & Fruit:
This modern variety is an early cropping primocane (which are generally called Autumn fruiting) that begins to fruit in late summer. These big raspberries are exceptionally sweet and mature plants will crop very well: up to 2.5kg per plant in fertile soil and full sun. Polka's fruit have firm flesh and store very well, for a raspberry.
It is possible to get two smaller crops per year from Polka. By leaving part of the old stems each year, you can get a late spring crop and another one in late summer. Cut the stems down to the ground after their second crop.

Polka is a tough plant that will perform well in rainy, humid parts of the country. These are certified raspberry plants grown from virus-tested parent material in the UK.

Characteristics of Polka Bushes:

  • Large & very sweet.
  • One of the earliest Autumn fruiting raspberries to crop.
  • Good disease resistance.
  • Certified

Growing Polka Raspberries:

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.

Background Information:

This Polish variety was bred at the Fruit Experiment Station in Brzezna by Dr Jan Danek's team. One of its parents is Autumn Bliss. It is the champion of the UK National Fruit Show in Kent, where it has been declared the best all-round raspberry for 5 years in a row.

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.
