Product Code: 6-PLYKKL7

Georgia ( PP 19430 P3) .The new cultivar of fall bearing red raspberry originated from a controlled cross at the University of Maryland Greenhouses in College Park, Md. The cross ‘Glen Ample’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 11,418)×PDW-4 (unpatented) was made in the winter of 1999 . THORNLESS!!! The canes of ‘Georgia’ are thornless. Of 16 most recent cultivars given U.S. Plant Patents, only three, ‘Glen Ample’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 11,418), ‘Tadmor’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 14,036) and ‘Motueka’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 14,035) are claimed to be thornless. The present invention is a new and distinct floricane fruiting red raspberry cultivar named ‘Georgia’, which is capable of producing large quantities of fruit much earlier than that of the worldwide standard floricane cultivars, ‘Glen Ample’ and ‘Tulameen’. The cultivar is characterized by its thornlessness and fruit with a slightly pileated drupelet. The fruit is also very symmetrical, light colored and round. Fruit aroma is very good and fruit firmness and sugar content is sufficient for shipping long distances.‘Georgia’ is more winter hardy  Compared to other early spring bearing cultivars such ‘Glen Ample’ and ‘Lauren’, a greater proportion of ‘Georgia’ floricanes have survived periodic late winter and spring frosts in diverse conditions as the United Kingdom and Maryland. ,it is much more vigorous in warm temperatures and its fruit has more compact, firmer and more cohesive drupelets, produced four days earlier on floricanes. ‘Georgia’ also has field resistance to root rot. 6 cm pots.
