Supplier - Backyard Berry Plants
Nova was bred in Nova Scotia (1981), and is one of the more northerly hardy cultivars of red raspberry. Very strong growing canes with medium to large fruit that is bright red and firm. Berry flavor is superb. Nova is very dependable and productive, and tolerates the up and down spring weather here better than any other cultivar. Yields are the most consistent of any of the floricane (i.e. “summer”) red raspberry cultivars.
Hardiness zone is 3 to 8
