'Ruby Beauty' is a new concept rapsberry patio fruit variety – a unique breeding sensation in that it produces masses of short-branched canes that reach no more than 1m (3ft 3in), with the added bonus of being thornless.
Its thick clump of canes produces heavy crops of up to 1.5kg on each established plant in 2 years or so, and starts fruiting in June, so is an early starter.
This award-winning variety has an excellent fruit flavour, 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. Why not make a raspberry hedge for an unusual garden feature? Just plant them about 70cm apart.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot ready for planting.
Supplied as an established 2-year-old plant, 20-30cm tall in a 2L pot.
