Dark flame-red, sweet, juicy fruits start ripening at the very end of summer and continue into late autumn on this very late-fruiting primocane variety, which will provide fruit constantly until the first damaging frost in late October or even November. Summer-fruiting raspberries produce fruit on the previous year's old canes, but this variety fruits very late indeed, and heavily, in sizeable clusters at the top of the new current year's green canes. After it has fruited, and all leaves have fallen off in the winter, cut canes to the ground. New ones will grow quickly the following spring, and these will again bear the heavy crop, which is produced mainly in August, September and October. Unbelievable but true, it does NOT set the main crop of fruit until late summer, and yes, sometimes into the first frosts, on green stems!
