A primocane raspberry variety from Poland. The plant is vigorous with a more upright growing habit than other varieties. Berries are large, very firm, and have good flavor. Polka is very productive and the fruit does not darken as much as other varieties. Ripens 7-10 days after Polana, similar season to Autumn Britten or Joan J.

Reviews

Planted these 2 seasons ago in my small backyard garden in May and was already harvesting by July. The shoots grew quickly and big. The berries are large and extremely sweet. This current season we have more berries than we know what to do with, they are very delicious and easy to pick, be sure to have a glove on one hand to move the bush because of the thorns.

I planted 10 Polka this spring for the first time I tried this variety. The catalogue says "recommended for beginners." I am not a raspberry beginner, but they aren't kidding about how easy these are to grow. I have never seen raspberry plants sprout as fast as this variety does after initial planting. The berries are large and this variety fruits earlier than some of the other everbearing (2 crop) raspberries. Have yet to go through a winter with these but the variety overall seems very hardy as all of my new plants grew.

Planted these last fall in a spot where Carolines were previously planted. I was disappointed in the flavor of the Carolines, so replaced them with these. They are doing great. They are just starting to have a few ripe raspberries. and boy is the flavor of these WAY better than the Carolines. A friend tried them and the flavor surprised him. They got an "Oh wow that's tasty!" remark.

Great berries. They started growing quickly after being planted this spring. Very tasty berry and it is still producing strong.

Planted these 3 years ago. Best raspberry ever! Friends have told me they have never seen such large raspberries. The provider of the berries suggested that I cut the canes back to ground level when dormant. (I cut them in late December.) She told me I would not get the early crop but the late crop would be great. Canes grew to 7 ft. by end of July. Crop was not only great it was unbelievable! Berries ripened about the 10th of August. On a 20 ft. row I pick more than a quart a day every day. Friends come every week and pick what I can't use. (Freezer is full.)

WOW! I just planted these today and boy was I impressed at the quality of the plants from Nourse. I have ordered raspberry plants from other companies before and they had a few hair-like roots about an inch and a half long. The plants from Nourse have a tangle of heavy roots up to two feet long and some even longer. And prices were no more than the sticks I got from other companies. With plants of that caliber, I have no doubt they will do very well. They were very well packaged and arrive in one day (I'm in NH). I am truly impressed.
