Nova is almost thornless and produces bright red medium sized berries, early in the season, with a very nice but tart flavour. Delicious raspberries are perfect for homemade jam and preserves and even better eaten straight off the plant. Raspberries are hardy to zone 2. No. Produces fruit in second year.
Pruning has a major impact on the production of quality caneberry fruit. It will affect growth rate, fruit number, size, and disease susceptibility.
Will produce a heavy crop of fruit on first-year canes near the end of the season and another, lighter crop on the same canes the following summer. Some gardeners prefer to allow their plants to produce the first, bigger crop on first year canes. Cut all the canes to the ground in early spring when the plants are still dormant. If you'd rather allow the canes to produce their second harvest, you'll need to leave the first year canes intact after they have yielded their harvest. Cut the second year canes to the ground after they have produced their early summer crop.
