Plant details

Glen Magna' is a recently introduced summer fruiting raspberry variety. It boasts large, deep red fruit with a delicious flavour. These are ready for harvest in July and August, and can used fresh or frozen. The vigorous, upright canes show good disease resistance. As with all summer fruiting raspberries, the canes that have fruited should be cut back to ground level as soon as all the fruit has been picked. For the biggest crops, mulch around the plants each year with well-rotted manure and tie the canes onto horizontal support wires.
