We are really excited to introduce the new breeding sensation in the world of raspberries and patio fruit growing at home.
'Ruby Beauty' is a new concept rapsberry variety - it is unique in that it produces masses of short branched canes that reach no more than 1M (3ft 3'), with the added bonus of being thornless. This thick clump of canes produces heavy crops of up to 1.5Kg per plant on established plants in 2 years or so, and starts frutiing in june, so is an early starter. Fruit flavour is good, as demanded by today's consumers, making this the perfect all rounder.
For best results, grow in a large pot about 30cm or so in diamneter, allowing room for growth over many years. Picking is at 80-100cm tall, so easy to net and easy to pick - perfect for children too. or why not make a raspberry hedge - plant about 70cm apart?
UPDATE - 'Ruby Beauty' has just been voted New Plant Introduction of 2015 at the prestigious GLEE Trade Fair in Autumn 2015.
