An early fruiting spine free variety with superb fruit quality. The fruits are large, firm, long and conical. They have a bright and attractive appearance and the juicy berries have a truly excellent flavour. Cropping potential is very high with the strong canes that are vigorous for a thornless variety, however vigour is moderate in comparison with other blackberries so if space is limited it is an excellent choice. Ideal for planting against a wall or a fence or growing in a container. The fruit is well displayed to make picking easy from the short, stout, fruiting laterals.
Eventual height: 1½m (5ft). Eventual spread: 1.2m (4ft). Cropping season: late July/August. Self fertile.
*Bareroot – November to March is the ideal time to plant bare-root plants. These are plants that have been grown in open ground, then dug up for dispatch and planting during the dormant season. They are called ‘bare-root’ plants as they are supplied with no soil around their roots. They will come packed in damp compost to stop the roots drying out and should be planted as soon as possible. As long as the compost is kept damp planting can be delayed for a few weeks if necessary.
