An excellent deciduous raspberry with short, slightly thorny canes and large, red fruit that has an excellent flavour in autumn. Its an all-purpose variety that has been popular for many years, cropping reliably but steadily each year.
As it has a compact growth habit and yields aren't abundant, we'd recommend growing two plants beside one another to ensure you have a plentiful supply of fruit. Malling Jewel has the extra advantage of being tolerant to virus infections. Primocane varieties produce flowers and fruit on stems grown in the same year. Most Autumn fruiting varieties are primocanes. Summer fruiting varieties are usually Floricane raspberries which have stems that grow for one year before bearing fruit and flowers.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
