Plant

Primocane red raspberry. It is a vigorous plant with erect growth habit, and an average height of 1.7m in the shoot of the season. It presents abundant development of side shoots of medium size on primocanes. Fruiting takes place along the entire shoot, so it is classified as highly remontant. The floricane and the primocane show a low density of small thorns.

Flowering on the floricane begins in early November, and the harvest period lasts two months, from late November to late January. In the case of the primocane, differentiation begins in early and the harvest period may extend from mid-February to May.

Fruit

Trapezoidal in shape and large-sized, reaching an average weight of 6.1g during the season, with a maximum weight of 9.3g. It is easily detached from the receptacle and has medium firmness.
