A good old favourite, all-purpose variety. Reliable steady cropper of high quality large dark red berries that have an excellent flavour and good texture. Easily managed compact growth. Very popular garden variety due to its resistance to raspberry root rot disease and virus infection.
Cropping season: mid July-mid-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.
