An excellent very hardy, yellow fruiting mid-season variety. Hinnonmaki Yellow has a spreading growth habit and may require support in maturity. It is a heavy cropper of medium sized, greenish-yellow berries with a unique aromatic flavour (and a hint of apricot according to experts!) Specifically bred in Finland for hardiness and disease resistance, it is particularly resistant to powdery mildew. The fruit is sweet enough to be eaten straight from the bush and is delicious in desserts and preserves. Eventual height: 1.2m (4ft). Eventual spread: 1½m (5ft).
Cropping season: mid July. 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 despatch 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.
