  • Other features: small firm red fruit (early July to late July)

    A high yielding popular variety with firm but rather small fruit from early July. The ripe fruits herald the start of the raspberry picking and are ideal for freezing as well as desserts and jams. It is quite susceptible to viruses and should be planted away from other varieties to minimumise the risk. Cut back the fruiting canes to the ground as soon as the crop has finished.

  • 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.
