About the Nova Red Raspberry Plant

A cold-hardy raspberry fit for northern growers!

The Nova Red Raspberry originates from Nova Scotia, Canada. This raspberry plant bears high yields of attractive, bright red berries. Nova raspberries are medium to large in size. They store well – making them ideal for markets and U-pick farms.

These delicious red raspberries are firm with a fine, balanced flavor. Use the fruit for jams, jellies, baking, and fresh eating. For long-term storage, freeze or dry the raspberries.

Growing the Nova Red Raspberry

The Nova Red Raspberry plant is a consistent producer, known for its large crops of high-quality berries. Upright growth and small spines make pruning easy. It is a vigorous grower with improved winter hardiness.

Nova adapts well to a variety of climates. This red raspberry can tolerate the heat of the Midwest and the harsh winters of Canada. It’s a summer bearer in the North and more of a fall bearer in the South. Nova is resistant to most common cane diseases.

Plant the Nova Raspberry plant for a reliable harvest of homegrown fruit in as little as 1-year!

Note: Do not plant Red, Gold or Purple raspberries within 75-100 feet of Black raspberries. Black raspberries may be more susceptible to viral diseases carried by aphids to and from nearby raspberry plants.

After planting, be sure to prune the bare-root canes back to about 2 inches above the ground. (This does not apply to potted raspberry plants.) Do not skip this step! It is a crucial factor in encouraging the roots to send up new growth during the growing season. It is in the nature of raspberry plants to send up new growth as suckers or basal shoots from below the ground. This means the canes that you plant may not be where you find signs of life or new growth. When it’s time to grow, you will see new sprouts emerge from the ground around where you planted the cane, and this growth is coming from the raspberry plant’s root system.

Survival Guaranteed!
