Rubus idaeus (Raspberry) 'Octavia' is a recently introduced variety bred at the East Malling Research Station. Producing heavy crops of large juicy red berries which ripen from late July through August, it bridges the gap between summer and autumn-fruiting varieties. Excellent eaten fresh or for freezing and jam making. All raspberries are self-fertile. Height of canes 1.5-1.65m.

Container grown plants can be planted throughout the year. Bare-root plants are available from November to March. Plant 45cm apart in well-drained, preferably slightly acid soil. Needs support: tie to post-and-wire supports with the top wire at 1.65m. Ripens best in full sun, but light shade is acceptable. Shelter from strong winds is essential. Prune annually immediately after picking, cutting all fruited canes down to ground level. Select the best 6 new canes and tie in 10cm apart. In February cut all canes to 15cm above the top wire. British nursery grown.
