'Double Delight' red raspberry

Fruit Varieties Journal 48(4): 202-204

'Double Delight' red raspberry

Double Delight is a primocane-fruiting red raspberry (Rubus idaeus subsp. strigosus) which originated from the cross (Fall Red x native species from Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA) x (Fall Red x Boyne) made in 1968. Selected in 1978, the name Double Delight refers to the tendency for the formation of twin fruits from the same flower. Medium red fruits are attractive, conical with a conspicuous rounded point and have medium brightness. Size and form is well maintained throughout the harvest period.
