NOVA Red Raspberry: Another early ripening type about 10 days after the Prelude ripens. Noted for its winter hardiness. But it also has good disease resistant, and does well in warm areas. Medium large berries. Good flavor and production. It tolerates temperature changes very well one of our favorites. one of the best choices for the more Southern areas it will also bear a fall crop in the warmer states but best crop is in June, Zones 4-8.
