Purple autumn raspberry with an exotic taste, very unique!

Here, together with our breeding partners in East Malling, another breeding breakthrough has succeeded: a crossing of the black American raspberry with the garden raspberry, in its autumn-bearing form. The black American raspberries - native to the U.S. east coast to the Midwest - have also gained importance in recent years. Their "different", exotic aroma and above all their health-promoting antioxidant properties are widely accepted. When we participated at a garden show in England a few years ago, after a talk by the gardening author James Wong about "healthy" fruits, our booth was suddenly full and 15 minutes later the black raspberry (it was Black Jewel) was sold out completely...but the black raspberry also has some drawbacks that scream for improvements: small fruits, sometimes lack of juiciness and fruitiness (too little sugar), more than just annoying thorns and bearing fruits on two-year-old canes like summer raspberries. A challenge for our breeder souls!
 
With the purple raspberry Malling Passion we can now imagine the fusion of the best properties of both raspberry worlds: the fruit size is about twice to three times the size of Black Jewel, the colour is dark purple and blends the black with the red of the well-known garden raspberry, the aroma still has the resinous-smoky tone of black raspberry, but with significantly more fruitiness. This is the main thing: Malling Passion bears fruit on the one-year-old canes starting the 2nd week of August.
