An exceptional variety! One of the best and heaviest cropping mid-season varieties around, second only to Glen Doll. The spine-free cane are upright and vigorous and produce long fruiting laterals with sparse foliage for easy picking. Exceptionally high yields of very large, bright fruit of superb flavour. The fruit also holds well without spoiling. Ample has a good level of disease resistance.
Cropping season: mid 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.
