Open crop structure

Late autumn raspberry from Advanced Berry Breeding from the Netherlands with good branching from bottom to top. Fruits are somewhat less homogeneous in shape, but good in size. Very good fruit firmness and colour, with light colouration when stored. The open crop structure makes the fruits easy to harvest. This autumn raspberry contains hardly any thorns, which will promote picking rate. Rafiki holds up very well in areas with high temperatures.
