In recent times there has been a large shift in raspberry production with most producers across the globe now preferring primocane raspberries rather than the floricane type. However, it is not as simple as planting a primocane plant in the spring, harvesting it in the autumn, cutting it down the following spring and harvesting again the subsequent autumn, and so on. Technical developments within raspberry varieties mean that many nurseries are now producing a range of different plant types. These include frozen roots, fresh plug plants, overwintered plug plants as well as a plethora of long cane types.
Professional raspberry producers can use the varying plant types to ensure a prolonged season of high-quality berries, often of the same variety. High quality and younger raspberry plants also have the associated benefit of producing larger berries. These then allow harvesting costs to be better controlled as well as delivering an improved eating experience to the consumer.
There is a high degree of scientific background that goes into the breeding of the raspberry varieties that we represent. This is best demonstrated by the use of genetic markers for elements such as disease resistance. It is anticipated that other markers will be developed in the near future to help select for other traits such as fruit quality and yield.
