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 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.

Background Information on Polka Raspberry Bushes:
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.    

Testimonials
I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
