My Polka (autumn) raspberries are coming thick and fast at the moment. This is their second year and they really seem to have come into their own. They’re huge substantial berries (just over an inch long and almost meaty), and everyone who’s sampled these gorgeous fruits expresses delight at such a sweet tasting thing. Manuel across the road would like a cane or two, and this won’t be a problem as they are spreading rapidly and outgrowing their small plot. I can dig up some spare canes when the plant is dormant come February.
I also grew some Polka canes in wooden wine boxes last year and had plenty of fruit too, so whatever space you have, if you love raspberries, it’s definitely worth giving this tasty variety a try.
