Product Information

After years of dedicated breeding we are thrilled to bring you this new variety. The fastest of all raspberries, this unique berry is compact and ideal for growing in pots. The medium-sized fruits are produced from July and have a sumptuous, dark red colour.

Although 'Summer Lovers Patio Red' is classed as an autumn-fruiting raspberry, once established it will start to bear fruit in the summer from the middle of July - 3 weeks before 'Autumn Bliss'.

In addition, and as a contrast to the classic summer raspberries, this one 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.

A breakthrough in raspberry breeding, 'Summer Lovers Patio Red' beats other established varieties in fruiting time, exceeding the current August crop of the earliest autumn berries. In fact, this variety has more or less made the term 'autumn fruiting' obsolete as it matures in the middle of summer!

Easy to grow and look after, this raspberry can be grown and picked without problem in small spaces, in the garden, on a balcony or terrace, as they reach less than a metre.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, reaching H80cm x W50cm

Top Tips

When planting, add mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole to encourage improved root establishment and better crops.

Care Information

  • Place in full sun as the plants do much better in bright light.

Pruning

  • Cut back old canes in February/March to approx. 5cm; this creates space for the emergence of new canes.
  • 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.
