Raspberry, due to its economic importance, is one of the most important species of berry plants in Poland. In Niwa, work is being carried out to obtain new and better varieties adapted to local climatic conditions. Breeding works aim at obtaining varieties for industry, including those adapted to machine harvesting, as well as typical dessert varieties, both for cultivation in tunnels and on field plantations. Due to the large scale of the work carried out, despite the relatively short time since the beginning of the company, we can already have several genotypes to our credit, which, we hope, will turn out to be the worthy successors of ‘Polka’ and will successfully compete with varieties adopted from all over the world.
