Introducing the Polana Raspberry, a variety that brings the promise of an early harvest to your garden. Bred for its exceptional earliness, Polana outpaces its well-regarded counterpart, the Heritage raspberry, by at least three weeks. Originating from Poland, this variety is tailored for those seeking to extend their raspberry season, offering a fruitful bounty even in more northern locales where shorter growing seasons can limit production.

Quick Facts:

  • Early Ripening: Primocane: Ripens in early August in southern New England and late July in southern Wisconsin, making it one of the earliest fall raspberry varieties available.
  • Highly Productive: Known for its high yield, Polana produces medium to large berries that are glossy, cohesive, and packed with flavor.
  • Adaptability: With its short, vigorous canes, Polana is well-suited for a wide range of climates, especially ideal for northern gardeners looking to enjoy fall raspberries.
  • Growing Zone: Thrives in USDA Zones 4-9, allowing for a broad cultivation range and making it a versatile addition to any garden.
  • Wildlife Attraction: These raspberries do more than please the palate; they also attract pollinators, boosting your garden's health and biodiversity.


Developed in Poland, Polana Raspberry is the result of meticulous breeding aimed at creating an early-ripening variety that could outpace traditional fall-bearing raspberries.

Growing Guide:

  • Bare Root Plant: This will come as a bare root plant, keep cool and moist until planting
  • Soil and Location: For optimal growth, plant your Polana Raspberries in well-drained, fertile soil. They thrive in sunny to partly shaded locations, ensuring they receive enough light without being exposed to harsh afternoon sun. Space 18-30" apart.
  • Watering and Care: Regular watering is crucial, especially during dry periods, to maintain moist but not waterlogged soil. Mulching helps retain soil moisture and keep roots cool. Annual pruning is recommended to remove old canes and promote healthy new growth.
  • Fertilization Needs: Requires extra fertilizer during May and June to support its vigorous growth and high productivity.
  • Pollination: These raspberries are self-fertile, eliminating the need for a separate pollinator plant. This characteristic makes them an excellent option for gardens with limited space or for gardeners looking to simplify their berry patch setup.

Bridging the Seasonal Gap:

Polana Raspberry stands out as a stellar choice for gardeners eager to fill the gap between summer and fall raspberries. Its early ripening schedule not only promises an abundance of delicious berries but also extends the raspberry season, ensuring that your garden remains productive and vibrant for longer. Whether you're located in the brisk climates of the north or the temperate zones of the south, Polana Raspberry is a robust and rewarding variety that brings Polish excellence to your backyard.
