New patio raspberry 'Yummy’ is just the thing for growing in a pot on your patio. It's naturally dwarf, growing to just 50cm tall so is perfect for container planting on the patio, terrace or even on a balcony!
From July it bears a bountiful crop of large sweet juicy red berries which are delicious eaten fresh and make superb jam. What’s more canes are thorn free so picking is pleasant and easy – especially for children.
Best of all, ‘Yummy’ is a primocane variety, bearing fruit on new wood therefore meaning you’ll get fruit in the very first year – no need to wait a year for crops! Easy to maintain, it requires just a little prune to simply remove old canes once they are older than 18 months and that’s it.
An easy to grow, care for and tasty Raspberry plant packed full of healthy nutrition that you can grow in your very own garden.

Plant Care Information
When planting, add mycorrhizal fungi to the plating hole to encourage improved root establishment and better crops.
- The thornless, strong branching canes, produce side shoot which also have buds and fruits.
- Place in full sun as the plants do much better in bright light.
- Pruning: Cut back old canes in February/March to approx. 20-30 cm; this creates space for the emergence of new canes and allows the old canes to fruit on side shoots from early June. New canes will produce fruit from the middle of August.
- If planting in a container, use a pot with good drainage and use a potting medium that is specifically for container plants. Your raspberry will be fine in a 5L pot for 1year, but after that, we recommend a 10L pot to allow the canes to spread.
