BP-1 is a cross between Polka and Tulameen, developed by the Berry Plant Company in Italy. The fruit is very high quality, lighter in color than Polka and excellent flavor attributed to the Tulameen parent. Plants are moderately vigorous, producing tall, upright canes. It has a higher yield than Polka. BP-1 is a primocane variety, but a floricane crop can also be harvested. The primocane crop is approximately at the same time as Caroline. The floricane crop is considered early. We highly recommend the BP-1 variety when production and berry quality is required. BP-1 is licensed exclusively to Nourse Farms, Inc., for North America.

Toronto, Ohio - I bought 5 BP-1 plants this spring (2020). I planted them per the planting/care guide that came with them (very detailed guide that I am thankful for). I am surprised at how much they’ve grown already since planting. There are berries on 2 of the 5 plants. I can’t wait to taste them and give an updated review next season.
Excited to purchase from Nourse Farms again!

Zone 6

I am now in my second year of BP-1. I started with 10 plants, of which only 5 grew. I received 5 replacement plants and planted those this year, and all 5 of those grew. I have noticed that this variety is slow to initially sprout when first planted (up to 11 weeks) , a bit slow in generating new plants in the spring, and slow for those 2nd year plants to reach the fruiting stage. Winter hardiness of BP-1 seems to be very good. The berries of BP-1 are flavorful and large. No problem there, but the fruit for the fall crop is maturing later than I had expected. Some of my BP-1 plants will in fact fruit later than my Heritage plants, and Heritage is defined as late season for fruit time.

In my research/ trial garden, this test item failed to grow beyond the size purchased in its first year; and has grown little in its second. The test garden also contains Jewel, Wyoming, Autumn Bliss, Pequot Lakes, and Ohio Everbearing. They are performing well in the amended clay loam by the second or third year. BP1 may not do well in this soil type. It will be given this season and next season to come to its decision.

Only purchased a few of these as I was unfamiliar with the variety. While they did not produce as many canes as my other red raspberries, and the canes were "unruly" in comparison, the size and quality of the berries produced was superb. Sweet, a little tart, with strong flavor and firm texture. Very large. The kind of berry food stylists and pastry chefs would love. Will grow more of these.
