Raspberry Malling Minerva is in our opinion the best early season variety. It’s a spine free floricane raspberry with erect can making it easy to harvest. Malling Minerva has a compact habit and produces attractive, medium/large sized uniform fruit with a conical shape and good storage potential. The flesh is firm with a good colour and flavour. It has excellent disease resistance and yields on average 3.7kg per plant.
Floricane (summer-fruiting) varieties fruit on canes produced in the previous year. After fruiting, cut out the old, fruited wood in autumn/winter and tie in the new growths to the support.
Cut down cane to about 2cm (1in) above ground level at the time of planting. This will encourage multiple canes to grow from the ground.
Not a particularly easy variety to find but just what I wanted for small garden. Canes arrived well packaged and seem healthy and robust.
First-rate plants with strong roots
Appear to be in good condition, canít wait till harvest
