Raspberry ‘Ruby Beauty’® is the world’s first compact summer fruiting raspberry making it ideal for growing in pots and containers on the patio, as well as in the ground. Fruiting in early summer (from around June), it grows to just 1 metre tall, but can yield 1.5kg (over 3lbs) of delicious raspberries per plant, once established. Although the plants are compact the berries are not and you can expect sweet and juicy fruits that are the same size as any normal raspberry variety, weighing approximately 4g each.
‘Ruby Beauty’® is thornless and produces multiple stems that are sturdy and require little or no support. It can even be used to form a low edible hedge when several plants are grown together and because of its height can easily be netted to protect the fruit from birds.
‘Ruby Beauty’® is simple to grow and maintain and should be treated in the same way as you would other summer fruiting raspberries, in that you cut out the canes once they have finished fruiting and allow the new ones to grow on for next years crop. We recommend planting one plant per 10 litre pot, or three per 40 litre container. Allow 70cm (2ft 4in) between plants when growing them in the ground.
With its excellent raspberry flavour, unique compact habit and good disease resistance we are sure that this variety will prove extremely popular. Supplied in 3 litre pots.
Available for despatch all year round.
Please note - We strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
