Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne Raspberry)
Nova Raspberry

Souris is an improved version of Boyne, the classic prairie raspberry. It is planted all across Canada and is extremely robust. Where other raspberry cultivars rely on unique selling points and specializations, Souris is just generally a great raspberry.

Souris is cold hardy and resistant to disease and spider mites. Its berries are deliciously sweet and tart while colourful, great for U-pick operations, fresh eating, or using in products such as jams and pies. They can be a bit softer than other raspberry varieties.

Souris canes are 3-5 feet tall, sturdy, and floricane. This means that raspberries will not grow on canes the year they first grow. The mature canes they do grow on, however, produce more berries than primocane varieties.

Taste. That's usually the number one reason people buy the Nova Raspberry.

The Nova Raspberry gets its name from where it was bred, in Nova Scotia. It was created to survive and thrive in the wildly varying climates of Canada, and it does!

This bush toughs it out through the harshest winters and reliably produces large crops in the summer. Nova canes have very few spines. As it has a firmer berry, it is commonly planted for commercial plantings where a harvester is used.

Nova Raspberry produces average sized bright red berries, with a long shelf life and delicious taste.
