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.
'Summer Lovers' is classed as an autumn-fruiting raspberry, however 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 youíll get fruit in the very first year Ė 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 thatís it.
A breakthrough in raspberry breeding, 'Summer Lovers Garden Red' beats other established varieties in fruiting time, exceeding the current August crop of the earliest autumn berries. In fact, this variety has made the term 'autumn fruiting' obsolete as it matures in the middle of summer!
Easy to grow and look after, this raspberry plant 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, ready for planting.
