Nova Summer-bearing RaspberryMid. Southland x Boyne. Kentville, Nova Scotia, Canada, 1981.
In our trials Nova appears as hardy, if not hardier, than Boyne with equally amazing fruit quality. Medium-sized firm somewhat acid bright red fruit. Upright productive minimally spiny canes produce long fruiting laterals that make berries easy to pick.
Summer-bearing raspberries bear on second-year canes (floricanes). Midseason berries ripen around late July in central Maine.
Disease resistant. Usually considered Zone 4 but is proving itself into Zone 3 with occasional slight tip dieback. Z3. (certified virus-free bare-root plants)
