Bred by Medway Fruits, Joan Squire is a new Autumn fruiting Raspberry which can be cropped twice during one year. The main picking period is during September, but the lower portion of the overwintered canes will then throw new fruiting growth which crops in early Summer of the following year. The firm fruits are excellent of quality and flavour, although the summer crop is a little smaller. The growth habit is necessarily vigorous to support such intensive cropping but the canes are spine free and easy to handle. The flavour is very good. loan Squire will be a valuable addition to all Home Fruit Growers, but especially as a variety for those short of space; although vigorous, no other Raspberry will produce more fruit per square yard during the course of one year.
