Sarafina is a new star in the world of autumn raspberries. This variety produces large, exceptionally beautiful raspberries with a bright orange red raspberry colour. The conical, firm berries have good flavour and are very easy to pick.

Sarafina has an excellent shelf life, making it easy to transport. The fruit also retain their light colour during storage. Sarafina produces a high yield and is suitable for cultivation in many climates.

The Sarafina plants grow well and form sturdy, open vegetation with strong laterals. To get large raspberries it is important to maintain ample room for the plants. Sarafina is suitable for ‘double cropping’, meaning the same plants yield a crop in the autumn as well as in the spring.
