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 and are floricane. 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.

Encore Raspberry ripens late season and features nearly spineless branches for easier picking. Its smaller, red berries are sweet and perfect for homemade jams, preserves, or eating straight off the plant.

Encore Raspberry is a floricane raspberry variety, meaning it only produces berries on second-year canes. Cut back dead two-year-old canes as needed, leaving last year's growth.
