Hi Jackie:

Not sure if NY Repository ever had Rosanna???
The National Germplasm Repository in Corvallis, Washington has
Rubus idaeus Rossana. I managed to squeeze one accession out of them this season.
Great bunch of folks up there very cordial and helpful.
Here's the link...

Here's the actual ID & Rubus accession number for Rossana...

If you need any help at all, just yell! : ]

Happy harvest!
