Raspberry Sugana

PollinatorAward

Rubus idaeus Sugana

Unique variety which produces two crops of fruit one in June and the other October

A new, versatile raspberry with large and delicious fruit from August to October. Unlike other autumn raspberries the fruiting stems should be left unpruned to crop again the following June.

Where?

Best in a sunny, sheltered spot, a good choice where space is limited or grow in a large container.

How?

Best grown in fertile, moist and well-drained soil. Enrich the soil with organic matter before planting - home made garden compost or well rotted manure is fine. Use good quality loam based compost for container growing . Net the area to protect the sweet fruits from birds. After fruiting, the old canes should be left to fruit again the following summer before cutting back.

Also known as Two Timer, Sugana is a breakthrough in raspberry cultivation with 2 crops from the same fruiting cane. One in autumn and one in summer.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.

Planting site Cottage garden, Informal garden, Banks and slopes
