    A popular variety with ornamental leaves and thornless stems. The saucer-shaped white flowers flushed with pink are produced in summer followed by medium-sized fruit with a mild and juicy flavour in late August to late September. It is a good variety to grow where people are likely to brush past the stems or trained over an arch or trellis.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Once planted shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). Each spring mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.
