Cascade Delight


Cascade Delight, Raspberry

Fruit quality and yield

Selected by Dr. Pat Moore at Washington State, USA, Cascade Delight produces high yields of very large, very firm, fruit.

The berries are glossy, with a long conic shape, easily detached and with an excellent flavour. The variety picked over a 46 day period in the HDC Trial at Oxford in 2012 and was the highest yielding selection. The season is similar to that of Tulameen but the berries are firmer and 20% larger, averaging 5gms throughout the season.

Yield is the same as Tulameen but the berries are firmer and 20% larger; at an average of 5gms.

The variety is vigorous with long fruiting laterals which benefit from a support system. Cascade Delight is slightly spined with most of the spines located on the basal portions of the cane.

The variety is susceptible to the Large Raspberry Aphid and to Raspberry Bushy Dwarf Virus. American trials have shown field resistance to Raspberry Root Rot and this has been supported by the observations of growers in the UK over the last four seasons.
