At least three weeks earlier than Heritage, Polana raspberry allows you to grow fall varieties in more northern locations and still produce a great crop. Released from Poland, its berries are highly productive, medium/large, glossy in appearance, cohesive, with good flavor. This variety has short canes that are vigorous. Ripens early August in southern New England and late July in southern Wisconsin. In most cases, helps fill in the gap between summer and fall raspberries. A great choice for early fall raspberries. Polana needs extra fertilizer in May and June.

Reviews

As a novice and a first experience in planting bare-root plants I am greatly impressed. This spring I completely rehabilitated a 16 Ft row of previously sick Latham berries: Deeply spaded and added much peat moss, checked soil chemistry. Ordered 5 plants each of Polana and Boyne . Plants arrived and were in the ground the last week of May. All grew well, leafed out, more than half also sent up new cane starts along the roots, surprise! I expected to wait a season before getting any berries, but at a month and a half they were setting blossoms, and now we have had perhaps two cups of berries! Wow, A happy experience!

Great raspberries. I planted them this spring and they grew quickly. Fruit appeared in about 6 weeks and has been going strong for the past 6 weeks. I would highly recommend them.

Growing space is limited in our small city. A friend recommended Polana raspberries because you cut them off flush in the late Fall so it doesn't matter how much snow comes off the eaves on top of them. They produce an enormous amount of berries, which we share with the Cardinal population. I highly recommend them. They are a superior berry plant. I'm terrible at maintenance and still the Polanas thrive.

A friend recommended these to me. I wanted a berry plant I could cut off at ground level because the bed gets buried deep in snow coming off my roof. Polana bears a lot of fruit in the Fall, right up to Winter. Mine were still ripening berries and attracting Cardinals two weeks ago ( mid-November) when I finally cut them so I could mulch everywhere.. I'm ordering more for my Camp property.

I had a great experience with this company. I asked to change my delivery time because of weather condition and I got my plants exactly when I needed to plant them. The plants itself were healthy, with well-developed roots and started to grow right in first summer. The only mistake I made was choosing Polana. I wanted to add a later variety to my garden but it doesn't work for central Minnesota. Polana is a fall variety and probably not suitable for the Zone 3 where growing season in short. The new cane first come out in middle of June, then they bloom end of August, and the berries are ready to ripe at the end of September. If we would have no frost until the end of September we would probably have a nice crop - there were lot of green berries on each cane. But last fall the first frost was on Sep.14 so everything was killed. For more southern area or lake area this will be a nice variety as it is high-productive.
