Raspberry Malling Minerva (5 Canes) Early Summer
- £8.99 Stock Status: Out Of Stock
Said to be the best early season variety, cropping from late June to Late July. Good flavour and shelf life. Spine free canes and a compact habit. Space raspberry canes 35-45cm apart with plenty of organic matter. Summer raspberries need a sturdy support system: run two wires one 60cm (2ft) high and the other 1.5m (5ft) high along the length of the row. Summer-fruiting varieties crop in July on last year's growth, so when their season finishes cut down the fruiting stems to 6 inches above the ground.
Height: 6ft (2m). Best in full sun.
Soil Type: Organic-rich soil, mulch yearly.
Fruit size: Medium.
Picking Time: Late June to late July
