Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Raspberry plant named ‘Shani’, characterized by its upright and somewhat bushy plant habit; freely branching habit; moderately high fruit production; fruits only produced on current season's canes; large light red purple-colored conical fruits; pleasant and sweet fruit taste; and good fruit postharvest longevity.

Description

Botanical designation: Rubus idaeus.
Cultivar denomination: ‘SHANI’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present Invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Raspberry plant, botanically known as Rubus idaeus and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Shani’.
The new Raspberry plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Rossum, Gelderland, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program was to develop new Raspberry plants with good fruit quality, productivity, uniformity and postproduction longevity.
The new Raspberry plant originated from a cross-pollination made by the Inventor of a proprietary selection of Rubus idaeus identified as code number 210001, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with Rubus idaeus ‘Advaberimar’, disclosed in U.S. Reissue Pat. No. 46,031 and U.S. Plant Pat. No. 23,916, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent in 2011. The new Raspberry plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single plant from within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled environment in Rossum, Gelderland, The Netherlands in early September, 2012.
Asexual reproduction of the new Raspberry plant by root cuttings in a controlled environment at Rossum, Gelderland, The Netherlands since the spring of 2013 has shown that the unique features of this new Raspberry plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations of asexual reproduction.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Raspberry have not been observed under all possible combinations of environmental conditions and cultural practices. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environmental conditions such as temperature and light intensity, without, however, any variance in genotype.
The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘Shani’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Shani’ as a new and distinct Raspberry plant:
    • 1. Upright and somewhat bushy plant habit.
    • 2. Freely branching habit.
    • 3. Moderately high fruit production.
    • 4. Fruits are only produced on current season's canes.
    • 5. Large light red purple-colored conical fruits.
    • 6. Pleasant and sweet fruit taste.
    • 7. Good fruit postharvest longevity; fruits do not darken in color after harvesting.
Plants of the new Raspberry differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Raspberry are more compact than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Raspberry develop fruit earlier than plants of the female parent selection.
Plants of the new Raspberry differ primarily from plants of the male parent, ‘Advaberimar’, in fruit color as plants of the new Raspberry produce lighter-colored fruits than plants of ‘Advaberimar’ selection.
Plants of the new Raspberry can be compared to plants of Rubus idaeus ‘Advabertwee’, disclosed in U.S. Reissue Pat. no. 46,030 and U.S. Plant Pat. No. 23,914. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Raspberry differ from plants of ‘Advabertwee’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Raspberry are more compact than and not as vigorous as plants of ‘Advabertwee’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Raspberry flower and fruit earlier than plants of ‘Advabertwee’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the appearance of the new Raspberry plant showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photographs may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Raspberry plant.
The photograph on the first sheet is a side perspective view of typical fruiting plants of ‘Shani’.
The photograph on the second sheet is a close-up view of typical fruits of ‘Shani’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photograph, following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the spring, summer and autumn in 10-liter containers in a polyethylene-covered greenhouse in Rossum, The Netherlands and under typical cultural practices of Raspberry plant production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures averaged 17° C. and night temperatures averaged 11° C. Plants were one year old when the photograph and description were taken. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 1995 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
